4-H Program

    4-H is a global network of youth organizations whose mission is to "engage youths to reach their fullest potential while advancing the fields of youth development". It's name is a reference to the occurrence of the letter "H" four times in the organization's original motto ‘head, heart, hands, and health’. In the United States, the organization is administered by the National Institute of Food & Agriculture of the United States Department of Agriculture. Throughout the world, 4-H organizations exist in over 50 countries; the organization and administration varies from country to country. Each of these programs operates independently, but cooperatively through international exchanges, global education programs, and communications.

Shiawassee County Fair has one of the leading 4-H programs around. Offering clubs for every aspect of our fair from crafting to beef to photography our youths get the chance to be a part of clubs that will help them grow and learn about our world. Our 4-H program works with the Michigan State University Extension to provide our youths with vast resources to broaden their horizons.
