Enrollment for 4-H program under way

Recruitment for the 2014 Huntington County 4-H program is under way.

4-H is a volunteer youth development and education program coordinated by the Purdue University Cooperative Extension Service. Its primary objectives are to assist young people in acquiring knowledge, skills, citizenship and leadership opportunities. Youth participants and adult volunteers are the most important assets of 4-H.

Youth interested in joining 4-H may enroll at the Extension Office or online at the Purdue Extension-Huntington County website: www.extension.purdue.edu/huntington.

4-H is one of the largest youth development organizations in the world. Last year in Huntington County, 1,058 youth in grades K-12 were involved in community based 4-H clubs.

In Huntington County, nearly 50 projects will be offered for 2014, including a new project, Microwave Foods.
