Health is the fourth “H” in the 4-H Clover (head, heart, hands, health).
Health and healthy lifestyles are common topics today. By helping young people develop healthy behaviors and choices, their short- and long-term health and productivity is greatly increased. Nutrition, fitness, physical and emotional well-being, and substance use prevention are all components of healthy lifestyles.
A primary focus is physical fitness. Physical fitness is identified by the Center for Disease Control as the major determinant of health for all Americans, including youth.
Research shows that youth who have an active, physically fit lifestyle are more likely to continue these healthy behaviors as adults, therefore, it is important to promote and encourage physical activity among youth in community and school settings.
Learning positive ways to communicate and interact with friends, boyfriends, girlfriends, parents and others is important for youth because these skills contribute to emotional well-being. Youth need opportunities to explore and talk about what it means to have healthy relationships.
Missouri 4-H developed a curriculum to help young people, age 13-18, and an adult leader discuss relationships issues that can be so confusing.
4-H exhibits and competitions are part of the fun of the Missouri State Fair. You won’t want to miss this special event; visit the 4-H building to see the projects of our 4-H youth or catch the judging competitions. Whatever your niche, there is something for everyone. Bring the family! The Missouri State Fair is located at the intersection of Highways 50 and 65, and less than 20 miles south of I-70, Sedalia is roughly an hour from Kansas City, Columbia and Jefferson City.
