Jo Daviess County 4-H

Jo Daviess County 4-H

4-H Name and Emblem

Did You Know?

4-H began more than 100 years ago. The secret to our success? As kids change, we change. We’ve ADDED MORE PROJECTS to the foundation of agriculture-related projects  things like robotics, environment, aerospace. We’ve EXPANDED THE ROLES teens may explore … things such as teaching, mentoring, and advocating for causes they support. We’ve EXPANDED into metro areas and adjusted 4-H to fit the lifestyle of active metro audiences. We’ve ENGAGED kids in more hands-on learning and stayed true to our belief of “Learn By Doing".

The 4-H Pledge

I pledge my HEAD to clearer thinking, my HEART to greater loyalty, my HANDS to larger service, and my HEALTH to better living, for my club, my community, my country, and my world.

The 4-H Motto

To "Make the Best Better"
