What is 4-H? 4-H clover.jpg
 
Young people participate in 4-H through clubs, special interest groups, after-school programs, camps and many other activities.  "Learning by Doing" through hands-on activities and community involvement empowers 4-H'ers to develop and strengthen life skills.  Although there are many common activities, each county in Tennessee has its own unique program and areas of emphasis.  4-H is a unique educational program for boys and girls in grades 4th through 12th.  4-H is open to everyone and provides equal opportunities in all programs.

History of 4-H
4-H in Tennessee begain in the early 1900's as an educational program to help youth in rural areas develop skills in agriculture and home economics.  What began as a Corn Club for boys and a Canning Club for girls, soon expanded into many areas of agriculture and farm family activities.  As the youth development program of the Univerisity of Tennessee Extension Service, 4-H embodies a unique blending of county and community resources with research and teaching of Tennessee's land-grant university.

Historically, membership in 4-H evoked images of farming activities, livestock, cooking, canning and county fairs.  However, over the years, 4-H has broadened to include all youth whether they live on a farm, a rural non-farm area, and a town or suburban area.  Today 4-H includes career fairs, service projects and involvement in the community, character building and much more.

 WILSON COUNTY 4-H ONLINE                

Even though we cannot get together, we thought we could have a little fun with 4-H Online!  Here's how this will work!  We will post a challenge online every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  Some challenges will be worksheet based, while others may be more hands on.  Email files and submissions to Morgan Beaty​.  Make sure you include your name and contact information for each submission so we can contact you if you are the winner of the challenge!

When a challenge posts, you will have 48 hours to complete it to be considered for a prize.  For each challenge, we will describe the rules and how to win.  (Some may be the first to complete, while others may be judged based on a criteria.)  The winners of each challenge will receive a small prize.  

Any 4-H member which completes all three challenges during the week will be automatically entered into a drawing for a bigger prize!  The weekly winner will be announced on Monday of the following week!

You can email submissions to Morgan Beaty OR drop in the Dropbox​.


Prizes will be available in the 4-H office.  Check back to see when the office will re-open to claim your prize.
