It's a great time to join 4-H
New year starts October 1

4-H is a community of young people across America learning leadership, citizenship and life skills. 4-H is young people making new friends and memories while preparing to be leaders of today and tomorrow. We are a volunteer-led organization that reaches boys and girls through small groups called clubs. 4-H members choose from over 40 projects in which to participate. Most projects use hands-on learning experiences to teach subject matter and life-skills such as cooperation, leadership and decision making — skills that can be applied over and over for a lifetime. Contact the Adair County Extension Center at 660-665-9866 to learn how to join 4-H

4-H and Tractor Supply Co. kick off Fall Paper Clover campaign

Every year, Missouri 4-Her’s participate in programs that help them develop the skills they need to succeed in their lives and careers. This fall, local Tractor Supply Co. stores continue their long-standing partnership with 4-H for the 2019 Fall Paper Clover campaign to let more youths experience 4-H’s youth-led, hands-on programming.

From Oct. 9 through Oct. 20, Tractor Supply Co. customers in Missouri can participate in the campaign by purchasing paper clovers for $1 or more at checkout. The funds raised will be awarded as scholarships to individual Missouri 4-H’ers wishing to attend 4-H camps and leadership conferences across the country. The total amount raised determines how many scholarships will be distributed following the campaign. Read more...
