4-H is a national youth program for boys and girls from ages 8 to 19. 4-H members have fun, learn by doing, make new friends, and help others feel good about themselves.
There are a wide variety of unique projects—everything from pet care, food preparation, aerospace, arts and crafts, leadership, and livestock—over 100 opportunities! Bingham County projects are exhibited at the Bingham County Fair. Top projects are then eligible to exhibit at the Eastern Idaho State Fair in Blackfoot.
There are other exciting activities such as camps, fairs, day damps, judging contests, and community service for 4-H members. The 4-H year is October 1 through September 30.
Each child pays only one enrollment fee per year. Enrollment scholarships are also available!

Volunteer for 4-H
Adult volunteers are the backbone of the 4-H program. They organize, teach and mentor youth. For liability insurance and program safety, adult volunteers must apply and be screened. Leader materials are free of charge, but leaders must also pay $1.00 for insurance ($2.00 for horse leaders). View a PowerPoint regarding Civil Rights
