Wabash County 4-H

Wabash County 4-H

Welcome to the Wabash County 4-H Website!

What is 4-H?

4-H is a youth development program designed to help youth learn life skills using the learn by doing approach. Youth gain confidence and devlop skills that will help them become successful in their future.

4-H is open to youth ages 8-18 (as of September 1). This program welcomes kids regardless of race, color, religion, gender, etc. For kids ages 5-7 we offer a Cloverbud program which promotes creativity and discovery without an emphasis on competition. 4-H is a program that the entire family can enjoy together!

With over 200 project areas to choose from there is something for everyone. Computers, robotics, visual arts, health/fitness, theatre arts and the traditional livestock are just a small portion of projects that are available.

How do I get involved?

* Call the Wabash County Extension Office.

*Choose a 4-H club to join- Here in Wabash County we offer 6 regular 4-H clubs, two specialty clubs and one Cloverbud club. Each club has a different date, time and location for their meeting each month.

*Choose the project(s) you wish to enroll in and work on the project(s) throughtout the year.

*In July you will be able to show your project(s) at the Wabash County Fair. (Note: you must attend 2/3's of your clubs meetings to be eligible to participate at fair). You will also have the chance to take your project to the Illinois State Fair!
