How Do I Join 4-H in Edwards County?

It's Simple... Join a Club & Enroll Online!

4-H clubs generally meet monthly, and nearly every community in Kansas has at least one. These meetings give youth opportunities to share their project work (speak), plan community service activities, and practice running meetings. They have many 'sub-clubs' for individual projects, led by adults or teens within the club. For specialized projects like shooting sports, many counties have county-wide project clubs that operate in a similar fashion.

Joining a 4-H Club is easy! Edwards County is always welcoming new members. While the 4-H year begins on October 1, you can join a club during any time of the year. We suggest you visit with a few of the club leaders listed below to find a club that will work for you and your family. Then all you need to do is attend your club meetings and fill out an online enrollment form...and you can start "Making the Best Better!"
