The Indiana County 4-H program will again be offering the John and Lorraine Conte Organic 4-H Award. Through a very generous donation, we have been able to establish a 4-H award for members who introduce organic growing methods to their 4-H projects.
As part of 4-H’s involvement with the Let’s Move campaign, 4-H National Headquarters has started a group to take the President's Challenge together - and you and your family are invited to be part of it! The President's Challenge is for one million Americans to complete the Presidential Active Lifestyle Award (PALA). 4-H is answering this call by setting a goal to have 100,000 4-H members and their families complete their PALA.

The Volunteer Recognition Breakfast is an annual event to honor county volunteers.
