One of the best ways to investigate more into project areas is to participate in project workshops.  In Howard County we offer Special Interest Workshops at various times during the year.  These workshops are offered to 4-H and non-4-H members, with first registration priority to current 4-H members. 


Copyright can be a confusing issue when you are working on 4-H exhibits for the fair.  It is your responsibility to be aware of copyright and trademark regulations when you develop exhibits and communication activities.

All livestock ID for 4-H members is done through 4hOnline.  4-H staff enters all market animals that are weighed in during one of our weigh-ins and youth must verify the information entered.  All other species that are non-market species must be entered by the 4-H member into their record.
