What is 4-H?

4-H is a world-wide organization for youth between the ages of 9 and 19 designed to help them “Learn-By-Doing” through practical hands-on learning experiences.

Who conducts the 4-H program?

4-H is conducted by the University of Kentucky through the Cooperative Extension Service.  Three Extension Agents work with the program in Rockcastle County.  All other leaders and advisors are volunteers.

How do 4-H’ers participate?

Monthly club meetings are held in schools and in communities with special activities throughout the year.   County events include 4-H Poster Contest, 4-H Speech Contest, 4-H Poetry Contest, and a 4-H Variety Show.  Winners of these events will participate in the District 2 Area events.  Youth are also given the opportunity to participate in 4-H Sewing Projects at each elementary school in the Fall.  In addition, 4-H’ers may participate in the Brodhead Little World’s Fair next summer, with winners going on to the Kentucky State Fair.  There are also judging events such as Land judging.  Ribbons are awarded for participation.

Parents are invited to get Involved!!!

Parents can get involved in 4-H by assisting as leaders for a club, project group, as a 4-H Council Member, or assisting with events.  

Volunteers are an essential part of a 4-H Program.  Share your skills and be a leader today!
