    We have an amazing group of youth leaders in Sherburne County 4-H that make up the County Ambassador team! Get to know them better as we spotlight them here and on social media every Friday!
  • Registration is open for Hands-on 4-H Day Camp
    Summer is here! Minnesota 4-H is active and open for business, and we are excited to share an action packed summer opportunity for young people. You’re invited to “Hands-on 4-H Day Camp,” an at-home, self-guided learning series to engage youth throughout the summer. All sessions are free.
  • Help us make masks for kids in Sherburne County!
    The Sherburne County Public Health division of the Health & Human Services department is in need of help from the community to help distribute cloth masks in the community. Help us make masks and serve the community by donating them locally.
  • Inspire Kids to DO this Summer with Make & Take Projects!
    Learn by Doing all summer long and even serve your community by bringing 4-H to others. Join our Summer Coordinator, Brittany in doing, making (or even distributing) Make & Take Kits all summer long. A variety of projects are available in these kits from bird feeders to puppets!
  • Registration is now open! Information you need to know for VIRTUAL Judging in 2020
    In 2020, youth will submit photos & video links of their entries in FairEntry. We will also provide the opportunity to interact with a judge in Zoom for select projects. Read this article for more information and guides to support you through this new process this year.
