Across Kentucky, over 238,000 youth ages 9 to 19 learn about leadership, citizenship and life skills in “learn-by-doing” experiences such as communications and public speaking, through agriculture projects like livestock judging, science projects with robotics, 4-H camp, Teen Conference, and many other 4-H programs and activities.
Here in Trigg County, We have 430 youth who belong to 4-H and are active in programs and activities such as ham, livestock, quilt, sewing, vet science, entomology projects and more. A total of 815 were involved in some type of Cooperative Extension Service youth programs. These 4-H programs provide opportunities to our youth and train the next generation of leaders for Kentucky’s communities.
Please remember to make your voluntary $10 donation when renewing your farm license plates in March. It will make a difference in the lives of our youth.
