Kentucky 4-H/Youth Development Education is a recognized community leader in developing youth to become productive citizens and serves as a catalyst for positive change to meet the needs of a diverse and changing society.  Green County 4-H works with over 1,000 local youth annual in various ways:  clubs, project groups, workshops, day and overnight camps.  All Green County youth are welcome to be involved.  We are continually looking for ways to expand the program, and adults who may be considering volunteering should contact our office for possibilities.  The links to the left will provide more information about joining 4-H and being involved.  We look forward to having you involved in a future program.  

 Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.  Garrison Keillor, U.S. author. Leaving Home, "Easter" (1987)

Livestock Update

While the county fair has been canceled, there may be the possibility of additional shows including the state fair later this year.  As a reminder, all youth wishing to be involved in 4-H livestock events beyond the county must have six educational hours by June 1.  If youth are looking at future livestock shows, the mandatory Ownership and Possession forms are also due by June 1.  There is also a required form when the animals are not located on the youth's farm.  These are species-specific; there are separate forms for breeding and marketing animals.  If you need a form that is not listed below, please contact the 4-H office at 270-932-5311 or email tgentry@uky.edu.    Beef Breeding Ownership and Possession Form

Summer Camp Update

Due to the recent pandemic and the challenges it has presented regarding programming, budget, and staffing, Kentucky 4-H is canceling our camps this summer. I have fond memories of my first 4-H camp as a fourth-grader and going that year with my friends.  We realize camp is a valuable part of growing up for many youths and we are looking at ways in the future to offer a camping experience.  At the moment, families have three choices for their current payments submitted including a full refund and a rare opportunity to guarantee your 4-H camping spot now for 2021.  Families should complete the following survey letting us know your preferences.  More specific details are in the survey.  Link to Survey
