Many Denver Online High School students communicated their interest in working with animals. Therefore, Denver Online High School provided an amazing opportunity to gain some hands-on experience with livestock while earning scholarship money. The school teamed up with The Urban Farm (10200 Smith Rd, Denver, CO 80329) to provide students an opportunity to take 4-H lamb projects to the Adam’s County Fair. Lamb projects were sponsored by Denver Online High School, but students were responsible for feeding, vet care, environment cleanliness, and showing of the lambs. They also had to give one presentation, participate in a meat quality assurance training, and complete a record book. They then sold the sheep at the fair for scholarship money while earning specialty academic credit for their unique experience.
