Webster County wants 4-H’ers

Webster County is looking for new 4-H members. Youth in grades 4-12 are eligible to join.

Youths can develop skills in communication, citizenship, leadership, project knowledge and skills in personal life management by being involved in 4-H.

Hannah Peterson, a member of the Gowrie Groundbreakers, said, “I have learned many things through 4-H, especially in the clothing project. From these experiences, I have learned to sew and help the less fortunate as I used my leadership skills and made pillowcase dresses with others for those in Haiti.”

When asked what she would tell a new person about 4-H, Rebecca Nellis, a member of the Country Charmers and a State 4-H Council member, said, “I would tell them that 4-H is the most amazing opportunity I could hope to have. I have grown so much as a person in my favorite projects of communication, leadership and citizenship, as well as learning about food, clothing, cat, photography, visual arts and child development.

“That is what is so wonderful about 4-H. You get to pursue whatever you are interested in and passionate about. There is absolutely something for everyone.”

Contact the Webster County Extension office at 576-2119 to learn more about joining 4-H.
