4-H Youth Development

Welcome To Meade County 4-H

4-H is open to all youth ages 7-19. We offer a variety of projects including Foods and Nutrition, Quilting, Photography, Rocketry, Livestock and much more. We, also, have non-competitive Clover-buds, ages 5 to 6. Clover-buds have the opportunity to participate in 4-H as they observe their siblings model and practice 4-H events.

In Meade County we are proud to offer three community clubs. They are Town and Country 4-H Club, Plains Live-wires 4-H Club, and The 4 Leaf Clovers 4-H Club.  For even more information about our youth development program, visit our Kansas State 4-H Office website.

4-H is a community of young people across Kansas engaged in learning leadership, citizenship, and life skills. Caring adults that support our programs are essential for youth to achieve their potential based on the guidance, respect, skills, knowledge and wisdom adults can share. 4-H is a nationwide program.

Join 4-H

Kansas 4-H youth development believes that youth will gain the 5 C's throughout their 4-H career:

  1. Caring

  2. Confidence

  3. Connection

  4. Character

  5. Competence

It is believed that youth who develop these five core competencies will develop a sixth C, and make a 'Contribution' to their communities.

We believe those C's start with being a CLOVER-BUD! Clover-buds are ages 5 and 6 and it's instrumental to get their start early!
