Discover Clay County 4-H!

What is 4-H?

4-H is a youth development program that offers hands-on learning experiences in a variety of ways such as online, in small groups, and independently. In 4-H youth can choose a topic they find interesting and receive support from staff and adult mentors to aid their learning. 4-H is family-focused--parents/guardians and their entire families are encouraged to participate. In order to participate in 4-H, youth must enroll and become a member of Minnesota 4-H. There is no cost to enroll in Minnesota 4-H.

Who is 4-H for?

Youth in grades K through 13 are welcome to join as well as their adults. 4-H is open to ALL no matter where you live, one common misconception is that you have to live on a farm or have animals to participate! Cloverbud activities promote creativity and discovery without emphasis on competition. Youth in grades 3 through 13 can participate in 4-H competitive activities like the county fair and project contests.
