4-H is full of exciting opportunities for youth. There are over 80 different project areas to pick from which include things like Shooting Sports, ATV Safety, Creative Arts, Animal Science, Archaeology, Entomology and Bees, and Robotics.
With nine 4-H clubs that meet throughout Logan County and over 150 members, you are sure to find a place to belong.
A few of the activities that were offered last year include Yoga for Kids classes, the giant pumpkin and watermelon contest, petting zoos, horse shows, Wildlife Habitat Education Programs, County, District, and State Speaking contests, shooting sports, the poultry chain, science experiments, a poultry and rabbit workshop, ATV Safety classes, Rabies clinics, and a sewing camp.
It’s no wonder that 4-H is the largest youth organization in the United States. If you would like to become a part of Logan County 4-H, consider attending a club meeting or contact the Logan County Extension Service for more information.
