Discover what 4-H is all about

Published 10:16 am Friday, October 14, 2011

Last week 4-H celebrated National 4-H.  In light of that, here are some interesting facts.
The official 4-H emblem is a green four-leaf clover with a white H on each leaf standing for Head, Heart, Hands and Health. White and green are the 4-H colors.
The white symbolizes purity and the green represents growth.
The 4-H motto is “To make the best better,” while its slogan is “Learn by doing”

The 4-H pledge is:
I pledge my head to clearer thinking,
my heart to greater loyalty,
my hands to larger service
and my health to better living,
for my club, my community, my country, and my world.
4-H is a statewide youth educational and development program provided by the North Carolina Cooperative Extension and offered in our area through the Polk County Extension Office. 4-H participation is open to all Polk County youth in grades K through 12.
The 4-H youth development program assists youth in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills, and forming attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive, and contributing members of society.
To get involved in 4-H call 828-894-8218.
