4-H Project Curriculum / Project Books

     A reminder to our Hill County 4-H members is to check the project books listed in the current 4-H Clover magazine to make sure you are using the correct book for your project.  Check 4-H online to determine which level of the project you are enrolled in.  Typically, the project books will last you three (3) years. Project books and resource manuals should be ordered from the Publication Store at msuextension.org to ensure you are using the Montana recommended curriculum.  If you have any questions on ordering your project materials, please call the Extension office for assistance.

Who can be in 4-H?How Do I Join?

     Any youth who is 5 years old on October 1st may join 4-H as a Cloverbud.  Cloverbuds is a non-competitive educational program that allows exploration of 4-H.  It is the only project this age group can do.

     Youth age 8 on October 1st may join a regular 4-H club as a full member who can enroll in several different projects.  They join a local 4-H Club that meets 6 to 12 times a year and pick at least one project to enroll in.  Projects range from cooking to swine to bicycle to pocket pets (just to name a few). 

     The 4-H year begins on October 1st each year and enrollment is ongoing throughout the year.  Some activities do have enrollment deadline dates to take part in.  Call the Hill County Extension Office and they can help you find a club and become a member today.
