New to 4-H and not sure where to start?!? Take a few minutes to read through our Clover Kids Handbook to help answer your questions.

4-H programs are grounded in the belief that youth learn best by doing. Youth complete hands-on projects in areas like science, health, agriculture and citizenship, in a positive environment where they receive guidance from adult mentors. Youth can concentrate on one focus area or they can try a variety of programs throughout their 4‑H experience.

2019 Fair Book

The county fair book has been revised to make it easier to read. All 4-H'ers and their famlies are encouraged to read through the fair book before beginning any new project. Each family may pick up their fair book from their club leader and individual members may stop by the office starting March 2019.
