As of this writing, Ohio 4-H is still meeting virtually – no in person events/activities.  

I will learn more on Friday morning with our State 4-H call. I will communicate what I learn with Main Advisors that afternoon.  Meanwhile, here are some items to do and some to consider.

•  Ohio 4-H has upgraded the 4-H online database – new link:        Use your family email and MUST REQUEST new password

•  County 4-H Report Forms were emailed to all 4-H members last week – you received that eLetter, too.  Attached is another copy. Forms are due February 28 at 11:59pm. Finalizing Recognition event date this week.

Preparing Youth for Success

4-H is a non-formal educational, youth development program offered to individuals age 5 and in kindergarten to age 19. Ohio 4-H youth development reaches more than 240,000 youth each year – helping kids “learn by doing” through hands-on activities.

All 4-H programs focus on active involvement and quality experiences which stimulate lifelong learning of values and skills. 4-H members learn valuable lessons in leadership, communication and collaboration while increasing their knowledge in math, science, technology and a variety of other topics.

4-H creates fun while learning in a variety of ways. Kids can participate in 4-H through community clubs, camps, in-school and after-school activities, and summer programs. They increase their self-confidence and personal life skills while learning about specific subjects - anything from animals or computers to public speaking, cooking, art, gardening and environmental sciences, just to name a few project topics.

I pledge
My head to clearer thinking,
My heart to greater loyalty,
My hands to larger service, and
My health for better living.
For my club, my community,
My country and my world.
