Extension is expanding its online education and resources to adapt to COVID-19 restrictions.


  • 4-H Mask Contest
    Here are the guidelines for the mask contest for the 4-H Livestock shows.
  • 4-H Horse Practices
    Join us on Tuesdays, July 7 – September 8, from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. for 4-H horse arena practices. Please be sure to   review the arena expectations and etiquette  before coming to your first practice.
  • Cloverbud Policy Reminder
    All 4-H’ers completing grades K-2 compete as Cloverbuds in exhibition. This age level has specific rules that they follow in 4-H.
  • Animal Science Show Dates: Volunteers Needed!
    Now is the time to sign up to volunteer for our 4-H animal science shows! Please remember that everyone's help is needed to ensure the success of our shows. We know that many of this year's extra COVID-19 related volunteer roles cannot be completed that the same time you're helping your child show, so we encourage you to sign up to help with other species wherever possible.
  • 4-H Showcase Schedule
    Please mark your calendar for this year’s 4-H Showcase events!
