Discover Life, Discover 4-H

ANDERSON CO., October 10, 2013— Joining 4-H can be a life changing decision.  4-H is a national organization which helps young people develop life-long knowledge and skills to become engaged citizens.   4-H is a group of young people across the world that learn leadership, citizenship and life skills.  The 4-H slogan is “Learn by Doing” and that is just what 4-Hers do.  Youth can participate in projects like horse, livestock shows, clothing and textiles, food and nutrition, wildlife, photography, shooting sports, archery, robotics, and much more.  A project can be anything you are interested in learning more about!

Members of 4-H can also participate in camps, field trips, and workshops that encourage learning through a hands-on environment.  Youth meet new friends through 4-H clubs that last a lifetime.  4-H has thrived for more than 101 years in Texas and continues to grow in all 254 counties. 

4-H is for kids of almost any age.  From kindergarten-2nd grade youth can join as a Clover Kid member.  Traditional 4-H members range in ages from 8 years old (and in the 3rd grade) through 19 years of age.  4-H has a participation fee of $20 before November 1, or $25 on or after November 1.  It doesn’t matter where you live to be in 4-H.  4-H has something for everyone, in the city or in the country.  There are numerous clubs that meet across the county.    

If you are interested in joining 4-H or would like more information, contact the Anderson County Extension Office at 903-723-3735.
