4-H is a youth organization that belongs to the members, their families, and the volunteer leaders that make 4-H possible. Leadership is provided by UW-Madison Division of Extension 4-H youth Development staff The goal of 4-H is youth development.
4-H is for kids in the 3rd grade through one year after graduation from high school. Younger youth may join as Cloverbuds when they are in K-2 and at least 5 years old.
Members choose a club close to home and attend club meetings once a month. They may select one or more projects from over 50 areas such as rockets, photography, animals, cooking or nature. Members work on their projects during the year and then exhibit them at the Walworth County Fair.
