How Do I Join 4-H?

If you are in the 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 and want to enroll (instructions) and mail the $30 enrollment fee  (make checks payable to Sioux County Extension, 400 Central Ave NW Suite 700, Orange City IA 51041)).  If you want more information about 4-H call 712-737-4230 or email Cindy Cleveringa at
