Kossuth County Council is a group of 8th-12th grade 4-H members who are role models for our youth. 
County Council:

  • has monthly meetings
  • plans and carries out fundraisers
  • holds events for other youth in the county
  • work at the Fair to help everyone have a great experience!

Selected County Council members strive for service and to help others, any kind of community service or project is encouraged!
This year the application process will still be to turn in the application by September 16th at 4 pm and to undergo an interview with the Youth Committee.  The 2019 - 2020 County Council members will then be asked to keep track of the ways they give of their time through County Council by using a points system.  This system was created to help County Council understand what is expected of them upon joining, and to create a self-monitoring system for each youth to keep track of their accolades for future scholarship applications.
Any future NEW County Council members will be accepted upon a successful application and interview process.  Any future RETURNING County Council members will be accepted upon a successful application and interview process PLUS 20 points.
We encourage any youth who are interested in joining County Council to give it a try!  This a fun group who does great things for our county 4-H program!
