4-H is an infomal, practical, learning-by-doing educational program for youth. The purpose of 4-H is to assist youth in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills, and forming attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive members of society.
Professionals and volunteers working together provide educational projects and activities related to animal science, horticulture, home economics, engineering, natural science, expressive arts, leadership, and citizenship.
4-H is America's largest out-of-school educational program for youth. More than 6 million youth now participate in 4-H, under the guidance of 600,000 Extension-trained adult volunteer leaders. It is estimated that nearly 40 million American adults are former 4-H members.
Plan to register for 4-H now. Registrations are available at the Harney County Extension Office.
The cost is $18.00 per member. After January 10, 2015 cost will be $23.00 per member.
Familiy registration (2 or more members) cost is $36.00. After January 10, 2015 family cost will be $46.00.
Funds will be used for the benefit of county 4-H programs.
