    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!
    Notes from Minnesota 4-H director Jennifer A. Skuza
    Jennifer highlights how 4-H is reintroducing in-person programs, provides an update on showcase events and clarifies 4-H eligibility.
    Staff and volunteers must report suspected child neglect and abuse
    Staff and 4-H volunteers have an important role to keep young people safe. All 4-H volunteers and staff, no matter their role or job duties, must promptly report suspected child abuse or neglect to local law enforcement or to the appropriate social services agency.
