Nashville, Ark. –
4-H gives youth the opportunity to learn by doing. Howard County 4-H members complete
hands-on projects in areas like science, healthy living, agriculture, and citizenship
in a positive environment where they receive guidance from adult leaders and are encouraged
to be an
active member in their club. Our goal for youth is to gain knowledge, develop life
skills, and form positive attitudes that will direct and drive them to become a productive
and contributing member of society.
One of the many misconceptions about 4-H is that it is just livestock and cooking;
however, this is far from the truth. Youth can focus on one main project area or try
a wide variety of 4-H project areas. This allows them to thrive and find that niche
that he or she is good at.
We currently have community clubs and special interest project clubs for youth in
several areas of the county. Membership is open for all youth ages 5-19. The University
of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture offers all its Extension and Research programs
and services without regard to race, color, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation,
national origin, religion, age, disability, marital or veteran status, genetic information,
or any other legally protected status, and is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity
Because of Covid -19 our program looks a little different right now, but Howard County
youth are still staying busy and working on their projects. Currently we are sending
out programs by kits to our youth, posting information through social media, and sending
out monthly newsletters. If you are interested in joining 4-H, visit https://4h.uada.edu/ and click “Join 4-H” or contact the Howard County Extension Office at 870-845-7517.
