4-H Motto

"To Make The Best Better"

4-H Pledge

I pledge...
My Head to clearer thinking,
My Heart to greater loyalty,
My Hands to larger service,
And my Health to better living,
For my club, my community, my country, and my world.

4-H Club Colors

GREEN which stands for springtime, life, and youth and
WHITE which stands for purity.

Who Is Eligible?

Lowndes County 4-H is open to all youth in grades 1 through 12. As long as the child lives and/or attends school in Lowndes County, he/she may join. Some 4-H activities are age restricted due to the level of activity and/or may require parental supervision.

When Are The 4-H Meetings?

5th grade 4-H members who enrolled in the Lowndes County School systems, or some private schools, have monthly in-school meetings. Monthly meetings for middle school 4-H members are on Club Days before school. High school members meet after school in the evenings. Visit our 4-H Clubs webpage to see if there is a meeting at your school! If not, be sure to join County Council - our county-wide club meeting for all youth and parents interested in Lowndes County 4-H!

Does It Cost Anything To Join?

4-H membership is free; however, some optional activities may charge a nominal fee.
