The Daniels Scholarship Program provides the opportunity for highly motivated students to earn a bachelor’s degree that helps them build a successful career and rewarding life.

The scholarship pays up to $25,000 per year toward the student’s unmet need, after applying their EFC, other scholarships, and financial aid.

  • Beekeeping Key Leader:  The 4-H Beekeeping Project helps youth learn about bees and how to be a beekeeper. Beekeeping offers many hands-on educational experiences, from learning about bees and nectar to learning to raise bees and produce honey. Level 1 covers “Understanding the Honeybee” and learning basic facts about beekeeping. Level 2 covers “Working with Honeybees” and walks youth through setting up their first hive and caring for it through the first year. Level 3 covers “Advanced Beekeeping Methods.” Youth do not need bees or access to hives to participate in Level 1, but do in Levels 2 and 3.

If you have another skill or talent you’d like to offer our 4-H members, please reach out to Katie Daywalker at  kdaywalker@larimer.org
