Civic U is NDSU Extension’s parliamentary procedure program for youth.

The Ward County team captured the traveling gavel trophy for first place for the second year in Civic U, the North Dakota State University Extension Service’s parliamentary procedure contest for youth.

Five teams participated in the second annual Civic U at the North Dakota 4-H Camp near Washburn.

The Logan County team placed second and the Oliver County team took third place. The top three teams were awarded rosettes, and the Foster and Renville County teams took home participation ribbons.

“The judges said there was great improvement from last year,” says Joel Lemer, the agriculture and natural resources agent in NDSU Extension’s Foster County and a Civic U committee member.

He notes that while listening to teams prepare for the presentation part of the contest, he heard great parliamentary procedure discussion.

“I think we are accomplishing what our goals are for this event,” he adds.

In addition to competing in the parliamentary procedure contest, the youth received a T-shirt and lunch, and took part in a flag ceremony, jeopardy game, written exam and fun leadership activities.
