How Do I Join 4-H?

If you are in 4th through 12th grade, you can join 4-H.

Sioux County has 17 clubs throughout the county.  You are welcome to join any club, anytime throughout the year.  In 4-H the project areas are unlimited.  If you like animals, art, computers, food, sports, robotics or music, there is a place for you in 4-H.

Here is what Devin De Weerd, a former Sioux County 4-H'er had to say about 4-H:  "As an engineer my goal will be to find solutions through knowledge, communication, teamwork and leadership, to make my community and my work a better place to live.  Citizenship involves giving back to the community.  Through 4-H I learned not to be afraid to take the first step, failure is when you don't even try!"

If you have found a club that you would like to join (instructions), please contact the club leaders directly (contact information below).  Enrollment fee for the year is $30 (scholarships are available - contact the Sioux County Extension Office for more information).  Please make checks payable to Sioux County Extension, 400 Central Ave NW, Suite 700, Orange City IA 51041.  Questions?  Want more information?  Call the Sioux County Extension Office (712) 737-4230 or email Cindy Cleveringa at
