Ohio 4-H Highlights: September 2018

  1. 30 Days of Doing Scholarship contest

    30 Days of Doing is a chance for kids to do with purpose through hands-on learning. Submit a photo that shows how your child inspires themselves or others to do with purpose for themselves, their family, their community, their country or the world.

  2. Every community struggles with how to help at-risk youth.  The right intervention can get them out of the courtroom and on a better path. 

  3. Boy with goat on a lead.

    Livestock and companion animal projects keep many 4-H youth busy.  A national program, Assuring Quality Care for Animals, is a training requirement for every youth taking an animal project. 

  4. Butler County Teens at National 4-H Congress

    A huge part of the 4-H experience is learning to be a good citizen.  Many youth learn those lessons at the center of it all – Washington D.C, where they learn about government and  citizen participation.
