4-H Week Letters

This is 4-H Week. Have you ever wondered why so many kids in Sanborn County are involved in 4-H?

In 4-H you can make projects in anything you are interested in. You learn about responsibility in many ways. You learn to share ideas, make decisions and do work that will benefit other people than just you.
If you went to the State Fair this year and you saw the new 4-H Exhibit Hall, you saw what can happen when a lot of people work together. We’ve done fundraisers to help pay for the new building, and we are proud to walk in and know we were part of making it happen. 4-H builds community, teaches responsibility, and you can even have some fun along the way.

Dear Hillary:
This was my first year in 4-H, and I had a lot of fun. One of my favorite things was showing animals, and I learned a lot of cool stuff about them. It was nice when we got to give goodie trays to the volunteer firefighters. 4-H is for learning and fun!

Dear Hillary:
4-H has had a huge impact on my life. From building leadership skills in Public Speaking to learning responsibility with show cattle, 4-H has played a key role into making me the person I am today. I learned leadership skills from learning to talk comfortably in front of an audience. I learned how to control a meeting room from being a 4-H club officer. I learned how to dedicate myself to a purpose with getting show cattle ready for show day, and the hard work it takes to be successful. I learned all this and more in 4-H, and you can too if you join 4-H. It has had a positive impact on my life and the lives of many others across the state, across the nation, and even across the world – and I hope that it will or already has had an impact on your life.

Dear Hillary:
My 4-H year was great, but challenging. I learned things with my sheep that I can do better next year. I learned from tips from people and also learned from personal experience. I showed three sheep at Achievement Days and State Fair. I had many other fun projects too, such as photography, sewing projects and baked goods. I encourage you to join 4-H!

Dear Hillary:
This week we celebrate National 4-H Week. My favorite parts about 4-H are showing cattle and competing in shooting sports. This year, I showed two Angus heifers. I got grand champion breeding heifer at Achievement Days with my April heifer. I also showed them at the State Fair. I competed in shooting sports this year, qualifying for the State shoot, and then qualifying for the National Shoot in .22 rifle. I competed at the National Shoot in Grand Island, Neb., this summer. I encourage kids to join 4-H because there is something for everyone, and it gives you a lot of opportunities.
