A photo gallery from the two-day 2009 4-H Capital Days event March 1-2 in Carson City has been posted on, the Web site of the Reno Gazette-Journal.

More than 40 4-H students from around the state attended Capital Days in Carson City, where they had breakfast with dignitaries, toured government buildings and debated upcoming legislation.

The breakfast gave the youth an opportunity to interact with their peers as well as Nevada legislators, university officials and 4-H administrators from around the state. University of Nevada Cooperative Extension Dean Karen Hinton, Assistant Dean Dr. John Burton and State 4-H Youth Development Coordinator Steve Schafer were among those on hand to greet the students.

"Capital Days is a great way for these teens to get an idea of how government works, and the role we all play in government," Schafer said, noting that the youths did much of the planning for the two-day event.
