In order to promote our Appalachian culture and heritage to youth, Breathitt County 4-H will host a one-day event for all fourth grade students within the county (public, private, independent and home schools).  The event, "Where I'm From Festival," will teach and engage youth about Appalachian/Kentucky heritage and culture through a variety of hands-on activities and stations. Areas to be covered include, but are not limited to, storytelling/poetry/writing, music/dance, cooking, visual arts, clothing, and quilting. Community members will be asked to share their knowledge in these areas, as students rotate from station to station and learn more about the traditions and concepts that surround them.
