Holmes County 4-H

The purpose of 4-H is to develop leadership, character, and good  citizenship in America’s youth. By emphasizing the development of the  Head, Heart, Hands, and Health, 4-H leads youth to produce their best.  Adult and youth volunteers lead local school and community 4-H clubs,  advising and encouraging club members as they plan and carry out  projects.

4-H is open to all  youth ages 5 to 18 regardless of race, religion, sex, national origin  or handicap and involves urban as well as rural youth.

Worried that 4-H is just about barns, cows, and hay?  No need to worry, check us out…we explore activities with a wide variety of interest from sewing, cooking, archery (shooting sports) and even robotics!  In fact, this year, the Holmes County 4-H is very excited to introduce SeaPerch, an innovative underwater robotics program that allows youth to learn to build an underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV). Youth can build a ROV from a kit comprised of low-cost, easily accessible parts, following a curriculum that teaches basic engineering and science concepts with a marine engineering theme.  It is fun, challenging, and inspires youth to utilize teamwork and creativity to problem-solve.

Interested in learning more about SeaPerch or any other area of fun?  Join us for the Holmes County 4-H Open House on October 9, 2012 from 5:30 PM until 7:00 PM at the Holmes County Ag Center to learn more!
