December 20, 2018 – The 4-H Showcase is quickly approaching!  Have you ever wondered what 4-H is all about?!  The Weld County 4-H Showcase is on January 5th from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm in the Exhibition Building at Island Grove (525 N 15th Ave, Greeley, CO 80631).  We will have hands on activities that relate to 4-H projects for youth ages 5 to 18!  Current 4-H members will also have projects that they have made available to view.  Hands on activities include shaker-bottles for Cloverbuds, leathercraft, chickens, goats, shooting sports, scrapbooking and many more!!  This is a great opportunity to see 4-H firsthand and learn how to join!

4-H offers numerous projects for members to build life skills such as leadership, teamwork and record keeping in projects ranging from entomology to rabbits, dairy cattle to cake decorating, and goats to rockets.  Throughout the year, youth will work on their projects and have the opportunity to showcase them at the Weld County Fair in July.  Along with projects, youth can also attend leadership conferences and events to meet others from the county and across the state.

New members have until March 1st to enroll however the earlier you join the better!  Youth ages 5-18 as of December 31st are eligible to participate in the program.  If you have any questions about the program, 4-H Showcase or the enrollment process, please contact Kim at 970-400-2079 or visit our website at http://www.weld4h.org
