Welcome to 4-H!4-H is the largest youth organization in the US. Sponsored by the University of Tennessee Extension, US Dept of Ag & Knox Co Gov, 4-H in Knox County provides research based educational experiences that promote excellence, responsibility, integrity, leadership and lifeskills.Join us and Make the Best, Better!
We have an active club who meets once a month starting in October and the year runs through April. Check back in the fall for more details!
We had a great year as a club. Each and every member jumped in and participated in almost every program each month.
Four members attended the East Tn Subregional contest in their project area. Each member created a project board explaining their project work and were interviewed by judges at the contest. Each member also put together a portfolio of their 4-H work for the past 3 years and this was also judged against other middle schoolers in their project across the region. All 4 members received top awards in their project! Congratulations go to Johnica, Anne, Camille & Reagan.
Our 2017 Regional Life Skills Judging Team won 4th place out of over 20 teams who entered. They were only 1 point behind 3rd place and were the top Knox County team!
Our club also participated in the hay bale decorating contest at the TN Valley Fair and won second place with their theme of Harvesting Farm Fresh Fun and their hay bale tractor.
2018/19 Meeting Dates: (3:45 -4:45) - Meetings held in Madame Haniford's Room (108)
In the past we have met on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. With the coming year, we will have a new 4-H agent who will meet with our club and once those dates are set in the fall, we will post them here.
This club is FREE to join and offers many hands on learning opportunities. We meet after school from 3:45 PM until 4:45 PM. Please open up and print off a copy of the enrollment form and bring it to our first meeting in October or the first meeting that you can attend.
The 4-H club will help you grow into responsible leaders and citizens by using projects to help you achieve those goals. Some of the most popular projects are public speaking, horse, photography, dog, cats, line & design (arts & crafts), clothing/textiles, poultry, electric, computers and leadership. We also offer opportunities for summer camp, workshops, retreats and service learning activities.
Even if you can't join us for our monthly meetings, please turn in your enrollment form to the school office and information will be sent to you about specific 4-H project groups that you have an interest in. See more information at the Tennessee 4-H website. Or contact the Knox County 4-H Office at 865-215-2340.
