4-H 

2014 4-H Day with the Rams

4-H families, alumni, and friends are invited to cheer on the St. Louis Rams at the 2014 4-H Day with the Rams on Sunday, December 21, at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis.  The Rams will play the New York Giants in a 3:05 p.m. game.  There are two ticket packages to choose from. Endzone Terrace tickets are $50 each, or Endzone Field Level seats are $94 each – that is a $15 discount for either seating area.  Ticket orders of 10 or more will receive an additional $5 off of each ticket.  With each ticket ordered, participants will receive a 4-H Day with the Rams t-shirt, and a chance to win a field pass. 

Yes, with each ticket purchased you will have a chance to be one of four people who will receive a Field Pass for the game.  Field Pass winners will be allowed in certain areas of the sidelines during pre-game warm-up!  Then they will return to their seat for the game.

There are no food and drink vouchers this year, but since this is the last home game of the year all concession prices will be ½ off!  There will also be discounts in the Ram’s Team Store for those last minute Christmas gifts.

As another addition this year, kids 13 and older are invited to a pre-game behind the scenes look at the sports industry with guest speakers from the Rams’ front office and possibly Miss Missouri 2014.  We are still working on an exact time for this event.

There are a limited number of seats available, so 4-H families are encouraged to order soon.  Families can call in or e-mail their order, or they can submit an order form online at:

www.st.louis rams.com/groupticketinfo, and use the promo code RAMS4H.  All the information for ordering is available on the enclosed flier/order form, or at www.4h.missouri.edu.  T-shirts will be picked up at the dome on game day.  For additional information please call Dave Hileman at 636-583-5141.

The NFL is very restrictive on what you can bring with you to a National Football League game.  Please review what you can bring to the Dome at:

How to join 4-H

University of Missouri Extension 4-H

Empowering young people to reach their full potential

4-H brings young people, ages 5 to 19, and adults together to learn everyday skills through hands-on learning. Working on activities from animal and plant sciences to robotics, 4-H’ers learn problem-solving skills that can make a positive impact upon our community. Through 4-H, young people learn to:

  • meet the diverse challenges of today’s world;
  • build self-confidence;
  • learn responsibility; and
  • make positive decisions.
4-H clubs

4-H clubs are open to ages 8 to 18. Clubs meet monthly for group activities and club business. Each club elects officers and has an approved adult leader who supervises club activities. Club members also enroll in projects in their areas of interest.

With projects on more than 75 topics, 4-H has something to interest every child. Here are just a few of the opportunities 4-H offers—geocaching, robotics, international exchanges, horsemanship, pets, starting a business, arts and crafts, raising animals, woodworking, photography and gardening.

Clover Kids clubs

Clover Kids introduces 5- to 7-year-olds to the 4-H experience. In Clover Kids, children learn how to get along with others, work in groups, explore their interests, while building self-confidence. Clover Kids do not enroll in projects or raise animals, and do not participate in competitive events, contests or shows.

How to join

Joining 4-H is as easy as contacting the extension center. A staff member will explain the enrollment process and membership dues. In addition to dues, some projects may require a small investment to get started, and there may be a fee for materials, trips or other activities.

Young people are welcome to join at any time. The 4-H program year runs from Sept. 1 to Aug. 31. Certain activities may have participation deadlines.

Be a 4-H volunteer

Adult volunteers are essential to 4-H. Adult volunteers serve as club or project leaders, help with county or regional events, chair committees and organize fund raisers. You don't have to be a parent or grandparent of the 4-H member to get involved. All volunteers are screened for child abuse and neglect, as well criminal records, before they are accepted and each year thereafter. As a volunteer, University of Missouri Extension will provide you with training so you will be well-prepared and successful as an adult leader. The orientation includes information on 4-H history and the educational framework, the characteristics of age groups, character development and safety.
