Enrollment Tips:

  • Double check all projects! If you sign up for the wrong projects now you will not be able to make fair entries for missed projects and will not be able to take that project to fair.
  • Cloverbuds can only sign up for project #715 My 4-H Cloverbud Year.
  • There is no companion/pet goat class at the Warren County Fair. If you want to take a goat to the fair, you will need to sign up for a different project.

Teen Leadership Workshop

Save the date for Teen Leadership in Action Workshop on February 21st, 9 am-12 pm! Registration will come in early January. The Teen Leadership in Action Workshop is for any teen who wants to better their leadership ability. The workshop will be interactive with an emphasis on learning real-life, and usable workforce preparation skills to help teens be successful in the future. Teens do not need prior leadership experience

Goals for both workshops are to:

● increase leadership skills in the areas of communication, professionalism,

self-confidence, and cultural intelligence.

● develop a greater understanding of various personal leadership styles.

● practice skills through interactive and engaging methods.

● help participants learn practical skills that will positively impact their future.
