    4-H members in Grades 4 – 6 are invited to join us for 4-5-6 Night. The 4-H Ambassadors have lots of games, challenges, experiments, and activities planned for the night. Invite your classmates & neighbors for an exciting night of 4-H fun!
    Important Deadlines - May 15

    4-H Federation Meeting
    Policies and financial decisions which affect county programs are determined by the Federation.  Some clubs even assign 4-H members to attend and report back to the club.  Most Federation meetings begin at 7 p.m. in Wright County Government Center Room 120.  The Advisory Council meets at 6:15 p.m.  Host Clubs: Hanover Honey Bees, and Northern Peak, and Maria Zephers.  Showcase Club: Northern Peak
    Horse PDC Meeting
    All horse project members and their families can attend Wright County horse project meetings.  These meetings are a chance for families to give their input on and make decisions about our great horse project.  This would also be a great opportunity to get your achievement books signed!  Hope to see you there!
    Rabbit Project Clinics
    Rabbit project members (and other interested families) are welcome to attend rabbit clinics.  4-H’ers will have an opportunity to ask questions, have their animals tattooed, learn about showing, and  much more. Please note: in the event of inclement weather, the Wright County Extension Office will post a cancellation notice on the Wright County 4-H Facebook page.
    LQA&E (Ethics) Training
    All 4-H’ers who plan on participating in animal projects at the State Fair (except horse, dog, and pets) must have current LQA&E certification.  By participating in LQA&E training, 4-H’ers learn proper techniques for livestock care.  LQA&E certification is valid for three years.  Those enrolled in an applicable project, and are due for training should have received a notification.  Please contact the office if you are not sure if your training is current.
