4-H helps me to make the best better.

Throughout my years in 4-H, I have learned to do everything to the best of my abilities and do even better the following year.

4-H has given me many life opportunities such as volunteering to do stuff with our local nursing homes, speaking about my projects and what 4-H is to kids, helping younger members with their livestock, etc.

I have been a member of 4-H for 10 years and I am involved in the horse project, poultry project, lamb project, outdoor adventures project, 4-H livestock Judging, the Leadership project, 4-H Council and, the performing arts project.

I am very thankful for the life skills I have learned and the confidence I have gained.

I enjoy 4-H because of the skills I have learned, the community involvement and the friends I have made. My favorite 4-H trip was our educational trip to Topeka where I learned what passing a bill takes and the different levels in the Capitol.

I met our state representative and got to give my input on bills. 4-H has helped my knowledge about animals grow and I enjoy being able to work and connect with an animal so much and have all my work pay off in the end at the fair.

I encourage everyone to join 4-H, you will have so much fun and gain some of the best life skills.

I love being able to see the smiles on kids faces when they see our projects and learn what 4-H is.
