What is 4-H?
The CLOVER answers more detailed questions about the statewide 4-H program.
4th- 12th Grade Membership
Members enroll in clubs and select a project or multiple projects to
explore. Most clubs meet once a month. Leaders guide members as
they set goals, work on their projects and evaluate their finished product...
often that includes competing at the County Fair. The project is an
important part of their 4-H experience but it is truly a means to an end,
that of developing valuable life skills such as public speaking,
decision-making, responsibility, meeting etiquette, recordkeeping,
leadership, etc. Once enrolled in the 4-H program, there are many
activities and events from which to choose.
4-H Adventures for K - 3rd grade
4-H Adventures members do activities that teach them about recycling,
foods & nutrition, caring for small animals, Family Celebrations Around
the World, bicycles, arts & crafts, outdoors, and much more! Clubs may
focus on one topic or dabble in a variety of topics. Our members gain confidence,
develop a positive self-concept, a love for learning, and an understanding of
and appreciation for social and cultural diversity. This program for our youngest
members emphasizes cooperation and excludes competitive events. Adventure
members are invited to do a display at the County Fair. Leaders and families
determine when, where and how often to meet.
