The 4-H Flag

4-h flag

4-h flag the next generation to be caring, responsible and connected. Delivered by Cooperative Extension, the nation’s network of 100 public universities, 4-H is a community that connects nearly 6 million kids and teens to hands-on learning experiences that give them a voice in their future. 4-H welcomes all kids regardless of race, creed, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, age or political opinions or affiliations.

The 4-H emblem is a green four-leaf clover with white H’s – the first letters in our original motto, “Head, Heart, Hands and Health.” The green symbolizes life and growth, the hearts represent love, concern, and service, and the hands symbolize the desire to be self-sufficient and competent.

Each club is required to have a treasurer and reporter/historian, who are responsible for the financial management of the club and for collecting newspaper and county newsletter clippings, photos, etc. to be used for the club scrapbook, bulletin board, and history. The reporter regularly completes and sends a club activity report to the county 4-H office, as well as writes articles for local newspapers and radio.

Each member should attend at least 50% of the club meetings and keep a project record book up to date. If a member cannot attend, they must contact the club leader or secretary and get a written excuse in advance of the meeting. 4-H members are also expected to participate in their county and/or state 4-H program, as well as take part in the national 4-H Day of Service on Saturday, April 29.
