Miller County 4-H
Fun and Education for Youth Ages 9-19 or for Cloverbuds, Ages 5-8
4-H is a fun and educational program where kids "learn by doing." It is a great opportunity
for youth to acquire knowledge and skills, and develop healthy lifestyles that will
be beneficial for the rest of their lives. In Miller County it takes the form of community
clubs, project clubs, and in-school clubs. We have an enthusiastic new 4-H Agent,
Samantha Kroll, who will be happy to help you start a 4-H club.
Anyone age 9-19 can join 4-H or we have Cloverbud activities for youth ages 5-18.
So come join the fun. There are many project areas and we can find one just for you!
The faces of 4-Hers are as diverse as the activities in which they take part. Some
of the exciting programs our members are experiencing firsthand include:
