Welcome to the nation's largest, outside of school positive youth development organization! For more than 100 years, 4-H has assisted youth in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills, and forming attitudes that will enable them to find their "spark" and become self-directing, productive members of society. 4-H is an informal, practical, learn-by-doing educational program for youth.
With over 150 clubs and almost 70 project areas, there is something for everyone in the 4-H program!
Please allow two weeks for your order to be filled. Do not pre-pay for your order. We will contact you with a total via phone or email when your order is ready. We can accept cash, money orders, and checks. Please make your check payable to OSU Extension Service. We can only process Visa or Master Card payments in person at the Extension office during regular office hours. Payment should be made when the order is picked up. Orders will be held for one month, then, re-shelved.
