In 2014, we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Smith-Lever Act of 1914, which officially created the national Cooperative Extension System. This national celebration will highlight Extension's past and focus on the contemporary application of Extension's transformational, educational programming into the future.
The national celebration will be complemented by state and county activities throughout the year. May 8, 2014 will be the primary day of the national celebration to signify the actual day the Smith-Lever Act was signed in 1914.
