The 4-H program offers a lot of different awards to give youth and adults the incentive to keep "Making the Best, Better." The 4-H application is an organized presentation of what has been learned and accomplished in 4-H. Filling out an achievement application does take some work but when accurately and carefully assembled, it is a useful tool for determining progress and personal growth throughout the 4-H'ers career, and will serve as a resource when applying for college scholarships and creating your resume.

Achievement Application and Diamond Clover Applications are due November 1 at the Buffalo County Extension Office.

We would like to share some easy, fun at home experiments and recipes.  Enjoy!
