State 4-H and National events provide an opportunities for youth to deepen their knowledge in specific areas, showcase their projects, demonstrate leadership and be recognized for their efforts.  Many events are open to all youth but some may are capstones to local learning communities/clubs and programs (e.g. State Fair, Awardrobe). In addition, to the state events many counties hold local events such as County Fairs, Science Fairs, Camping Trips, and conferences.  Please check your County’s Extension Office website for more information.
