Cornell Cooperative Extension Chautauqua County’s 4-H Program is excited to announce the new STEM program STORY (Science, Technology, Opportunities for Rural Youth), debuting its first presentation this Saturday in Jamestown. Sherman Central School 6th grade kids have been working very hard to learn, solve and come up with a presentation on Biosecurity. The children have been meeting on a weekly basis for the last 2 months to work on and help solve the spread of disease carrying mosquitoes. The STORY program is a regional program funded by a grant from The Ralph Wilson Jr. Foundation. We are excited to be hosting the presentation at 11:00 a.m. at the Frank W. Bratt Agricultural Center; 3542 Turner Rd.; Jamestown, NY 14701. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend. If you have any questions please call the CCE Chautauqua Office at 716-664-9502.

The 4-H Program is one of many programs offered by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County (CCE-Chautauqua). CCE-Chautauqua is a subordinate governmental agency with an educational mission that operates under a form of organization and administration approved by Cornell University as agent for the State of New York. It is tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The association is part of the national cooperative extension system, an educational partnership between County, State, and Federal governments. As New York’s land grant university Cornell administers the system in this state. Each Cornell Cooperative Extension association is an independent employer that is governed by an elected Board of Directors with general oversight from Cornell. All associations work to meet the needs of the counties in which they are located as well as state and national goals.
