8-7-15 4-H Fair Project editThe best thing about summer? County fair time!

I finally got my yearly -corn dog, funnel cake and lemon shake-up fix.  Food, hands down my favorite thing about fair time.

This time to year also brings the time for children to show off all of their hard work and talents with their 4-H projects. These projects range from cake decorating to showing livestock and everything in between.

4-H is the nation’s largest youth development organization, empowering six million young people throughout the United States. 4-H empowers youth to reach their full potential, working and learning in partnership with caring adults.

Head, Heart, Hands, and Health are the four Hs in 4-H, and they are the four values members work on through fun and engaging programs.

  • Head – Managing, Thinking
  • Heart – Relating, Caring
  • Hands – Giving, Working
  • Health – Being, Living
