4-H is “a community of more than 100 public universities across the nation that provides experiences where young people learn by doing. Kids complete hands-on projects in areas like health, science, agriculture and citizenship, in a positive environment where they receive guidance from adult mentors and are encouraged to take on proactive leadership roles,” states the official 4-H website [https://4-h.org/about/what-is-4-h/].

My 4-H club is the 4-H Aullwood Wild Wolves Club. We meet at the Aullwood Farm every month from February to September. The older kids, third grade to age 18, get to do a project that is judged at the county fair and possibly the state fair. The project that I usually do is photography. I’ve done photography for three years, and I’ve gone to the state fair two times. Photography is very fun and interesting, and I plan on being a photographer when I get older. This year, I did welding for my 4-H project. I never thought that I would ever do welding in my life, but 4-H introduced me to it. Welding is very hard and it takes a lot of work, but it is fun.

I think that everyone should join 4-H because it can teach you various skills, and you can meet new people through 4-H. “It teaches you leadership. It teaches you how to be a part of your community, [builds] friendships, and teaches you how to do things that you never thought you would do, from cooking to woodworking,” says Tara Pitstick, the leader of the Aullwood Wild Wolves 4-H Club. You should definitely check out 4-H, or maybe even join. I hope that you learned something new about 4-H. Will you join?
