Extension is expanding its online education and resources while in-person events and classes are canceled.


  • Fair canceled, 4-H showcases still planned
    Both our fair boards in Koochiching county and the Minnesota State Fair board have made the difficult decision to cancel their 2020 fairs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 4-H supports this decision and is committed to offering an alternative for Koochiching County youth to showcase their learning and achievements. So keep working on your projects. We are working on ways for you to celebrate your effort and achievements yet this summer.
  • State Fair cancellation
    Extension is creating alternate experiences for 4-He'rs and others. "It won’t replace the Fair but we are committed to meaningful programming," says Dean Durgan.
  • Register for the 4-H State Leadership Conference -YELLO...ish!
    Our annual youth leadership conference led by Minnesota 4-H State Ambassadors for youth in grade 7+ is transitioned many of the YELLO activities to the online environment! YELLO-ish will take place Wednesday, June 10th-Friday, June 12th. Youth will be able to participate in a variety of workshops and social activities online - check out one or all of the opportunities!
  • Helping Youth Thrive webinar series
    This 3 part webinar series is for 4-H volunteers who want to help youth thrive during this social distancing time. Volunteers will learn how to support youth in their growth as they discover what they are learning and how they apply their learning to real life situations.
  • 4-H Healthy Sprouts
    Do you love to garden and want to grow your own food? Are you interested in the science behind plants? Do you want to take a deeper dive into food-related careers? If so, Healthy Sprouts might be just the program for you!
