Osage County celebrates National 4-H Week, October 6-12, 2019

This week, Oct. 6-12, 2019, is National 4-H Week, during which millions of youth, parents, volunteers and alumni across the country will be celebrating everything 4-H. Local 4-Hers will observe National 4-H Week this year by showcasing their experiences that 4-H offers young people, and will highlight the remarkable 4-H youth in our community who work each day to make a positive impact on those around them.

The theme of this year’s National 4-H Week is Inspire Kids to Do, which highlights how 4-H encourages kids to take part in hands-on learning experiences in areas such as health, science, agriculture and civic engagement. The positive environment provided by 4-H mentors ensures that kids in every county and parish in the country – from urban neighborhoods to suburban schoolyards to rural farming communities – are encouraged to take on proactive leadership roles and are empowered with the skills to lead in life and career.

In Osage County, around 200 4-H youth and leaders from the local community are involved in 4‑H.

Working with Frontier Extension District and local 4-Hers, Osage County news is celebrating 4-H Week by publishing articles about local 4-H clubs and its participants.
