    Ages 5 to 8 they can be a Cloverbud which basically means they can do most of the things the older kids can do, but are not allowed to compete or be judged. There are a lot of Cloverbud project books with a "explore this" theme to them where they get to do stuff without so much record keeping and what not.

    Ages 8 and up they're full-fledged 4-H members.

  5. This is what it says for our local 4-H
    -------------------------------------------------

    Who Can Join 4-H?
    Membership in the Curry County 4-H program is open to all youth in grades K-12. Youth in grades K-3 may participate in the 4-H Adventures program. This non-competitive, group-oriented program allows youth to explore many topics such as natural resources, the community, foods, science, art and more.

    Youth in grades 4-12 may join 4-H project or community clubs, which are led by volunteer leaders.

    There are more than 50 projects available in the following curriculum areas:

    •Animal Science
    •Horticulture
    •Natural Science
    •Engineering
    •Expressive Arts
    •Home Economics
    •Citizenship
    •Leadership
    •4-H Adventures

    ------------------------------------------------------------
    So kids K-3 cant participate in the above topics. But they have a different group that does things and gets them prepared for regular
    4-H

    Quote:He may not have to wait. Ask your 4-H person at your local extension office about who is doing Cloverbuds.

    Contact Danny Bullington at the Knox County Extension office and ask him about the Cloverbud program.

    It's a great place to get kids started. Lots of fun, no stress from having to compete.
