4-H Youth Development

 

The 4-H/Youth Development program creates opportunities and supportive environments for youth and adults to become capable, competent and caring citizens. The emphasis is on "hands-on" learning that focuses on the youth's area of interest. Programs are conducted with the help of parents, adult volunteer leaders and professional staff who organize educational experiences. Youth participate in organized 4-H clubs, special interest and project groups, 4-H school enrichment programs, 4-H camp and other special activities.

Fayette County 4-H programs and events (including, but not limited to clubs, classes and camps) are for residents or students of Fayette County only. If you are not a resident or student of Fayette County, please check with your home county about the 4-H Programs available for your child.

It’s time for Kentucky’s young people to exercise their financial creativity by entering the Piggy Bank Design Contest.

The University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment and its Managing in Tough Times Initiative host the contest every fall in anticipation of Kentucky Saves Week, a time in February dedicated to encouraging individuals to start or increase their personal savings. Kentucky Saves Week 2015 is Feb. 23-28.

Any school-age student in Kentucky can enter the Piggy Bank Design Contest at their county UK Cooperative Extension office. While the contest gives students the opportunity to think creatively, it also affords them with the chance to think about ways to build wealth and reduce debt.

Each of the state’s seven extension districts will choose two winning entries based on originality, creativity, artistic design and attractiveness. Winning designs will be displayed in the Capitol Rotunda in Frankfort during February. Winners will also receive a certificate.
