As a 4-H member, you will have opportunities to participate, not only locally, but also in regional, state, and even national events!
The 4-H program provides opportunities for youth and their families to participate in positive youth development experiences.
The College of Agricultural Sciences will recognize outstanding Pennsylvania 4-H members for their excellence in the 4-H program including leadership, community service, and communication. One 4-H member from each county will be identified as the outstanding 4-H member for that county.
4-H has often been referred to as the "best kept secret in town". Getting the word out that 4-H is not only thriving, but making a positive impact on kids is news that should be shared in every county. Kids are having fun, making friends, working with great adult volunteers and learning skills that will have an impact for the rest of their lives. The PA 4-H County Ambassador program is one way to turn the secret into public knowledge.
