All 4-H events and activities are designed to add hands-on education to the three primary 4-H programs. By providing physical, mental, social, and emotional growth opportunities, 4-H events give members positive, meaningful experiences. 4-H events are hosted at the county, district, state, and national levels. They include Competitive and Non-Competitive events that balance the cooperative learning activities in an informal education program. Events align with 4-H projects areas of science, healthy living, and citizenship and leadership. 4-H events provide members opportunities to share what they have learned in their 4-H project. 4-H Events promote mastery through learning opportunities beyond the 4-H club. Events also recognize youth for their project accomplishments.
