    THE BASICS 4-H Cloverbud is the name of any 4-H member age 5-7 who enroll in the 4-H Cloverbud Project. 4-H Cloverbud education is activity-based and leader directed. 4H Cloverbud learning is based on age-appropriate research and involves cooperative, experiential, and non-competitive activities. Fair participation should be used to provide positive reinforcement only. No competition, scoring, or activities beyond those approved through the Illinois 4-H Cloverbud curricula are acceptable. • Members, age 5-7, are not eligible to enroll in 4-H projects that are not designed for the age group (example: current Illinois Clover listings for ages 8-19). Projects available for 4-H Cloverbuds are listed in a separate section of the Illinois Clover. • Members, age 5-7, are not eligible for premium funds.
