Welcome to the Noble County 4-H Program! We strive to build youth's leadership, citizenship, and life skills through the 4-H program. Find information and resources about 4-H in Noble county below. Interested and want to discuss 4-H? Contact the Noble County Extension Office at (580) 336-4621. We are happy to help!

 

What is 4-H? 

4-H is the largest youth organization in the nation, open to youth grades 3rd - 12th grades and administered by the OSU Extension. Through 4-H, youth learn valuable life skills that enable them to grow into productive citizens. Through hands-on learning opportunities in many different areas of interest, youth develop critical thinking skills, gain self-confidence, set and achieve goals, and learn responsibility.

 

Although 4-H is deeply rooted in agricultural practices, its not cows, plows and sows anymore. Today's 4-H youth can still be found showing steers, but also using GPS units, teaching others about drug and alcohol prevention, traveling, taking photographs and giving speeches.

 

4-H offers fun and unique opportunities to enhance life skills through age-appropriate activities.  Youth also have the opportunity to be part of the county officers and ambassadors, a team specifically for youth grades 7th to 12th that meet for service projects and fun outings.  Junior 4-H members, grades 3rd - 6th, can attend 4-H camp and Jr Roundup by earning points through participation in 4-H activities throughout the year.  For those youth ages 5 to 7, the Cloverbud program provides an introduction to 4-H activities through a non-competitive format.

 

  • 4-H Enrollment

    Due to changes in the enrollment process all new or current 4-H members must enroll online.  Paper enrollment will no longer be accepted.

     

    To join 4-H, there is a $20.00 enrollment fee per youth or no more than $60.00 for more than 3 members in a single family.  Payment can be made online when enrolling with a credit card or payment can be sent to Noble County Extension office by check or cash. 

     

    We will not deny a child membership due to the inability to pay.

    Project groups are small groups of 4-H members that meet seasonally for a period of time during the year for a specific topic or 4-H project.  Each project group is lead by a Certified 4-H Volunteer or Teen Leader.  They are open to all Noble County 4-H members

  • Cloverbuds

    The cloverbud program is open to youth ages 5 to 7.  The Cloverbud program is a non-competitive, fun, informal educational program to acquaint youth with 4-H.  Cloverbuds participate in specially-designated classes where youth are not evaluated but rewarded for the learning experience.  Children of this age are not developmentally ready for competition.  The emphasis of Cloverbuds is to help each child grow and develop at his or her own pace and sample the many opportunities provided by 4-H.  As a result of their participation, the child is more informed about project selection when they enroll as a 4-H member in 3rd grade.
