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 is a youth development program open to all youth in Pittsburg County. Youth may enroll in 4-H on September 1 if they are 8 AND in the 3rd grade. If they turn 8 after September 1 and are in the 3rd grade, they will not be eligible to enroll in 4-H until the next 4-H year but they may participate as a Cloverbud. 4-H membership ends on August 31 following the completion of the 12th grad or having reached the age of 19 on or before September 1, whichever comes first.
