Why would someone want to be in 4-H?
By Emily Evert, Junior, Medical Technology Program

Hm…good question! However, it’s so simple yet it has some complexity. By being simple I mean yes, anybody in their right mind would want to join 4-H; the complexity of it is that 4-H provides someone with so much it’s hard to narrow it down to a paragraph. 4-H is awesome, there I’ve said it! 4-H is the pinnacle of organizations to belong to, it allows for so much personal growth and it provides a lot of social situations that enable youth to reach out beyond what they consider “comfortable.” It takes those self-conscious thoughts out of your head and molds you into a person who develops public speaking skills, a community-minded/earth conserving machine! But also it allows for the building of a concrete, unsurpassed leadership know-how. There are so many friends that you’ll meet because of the many social opportunities given to 4-Hers…just to name a few: Camps such as OMC (Older Members’ Conference), Alpha I, Alpha II which are on the state level, but also conferences on the National Level. 4-H is so powerful that it has even gone global; it is a force that has impacted people all over the world. We are the youth of America, but wouldn’t it be cool to meet and become friends with the youth of the world? I think it would be! I’m already part of this wonderful organization that has given me so much…Now, it’s your turn! I DARE YOU.
