Southern's AG Center hosting youth expo

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Southern University's Ag Center Youth Expo is underway. The goal of the event is to help prepare students for success down the road. They learn about science and technology as well as healthy lifestyles and making good choices.

Students come to the campus from all over the state for the three-day event. The Ag Center has been hosting the event for more than 20 years.

"Things change over time, but the emphasis of the Youth Expo is still basically to get the kids to come and actually get workshops on enrichment, growing to feel good about themselves and understanding the importance of communication skills."

Saturday's event will include a Quiz Bowl about what they've learned at the Expo and an awards ceremony.
