4-H has taught me so much. I have been in 4-H since the 5th grade and I have to say it has been the most wonderful experience. I started out kind of shy not knowing that many people, and the person who sat in the back with my parent. Now I am leading in many ways.

Spencer K

I have gained many valuable opportunities in 4-H that I would never have been able to participate in otherwise. I was able to visit our state legislators and see how our government worked. I was able to meet a 4-H representative from my county and travel all over to promote 4-H as a whole.

Emily P

4-H has not only impacted my life, but has changed it drastically. From the moment I stepped foot in my first club meeting, to being accepted into Wisconsin Drama Company, I have always loved it. It's 4-H that teaches you things you won't learn in school.

I started out in 4-H as a cloverbud and grew my 4-H career from there. When I was in 7th grade I went to the Wisconsin state 4-H youth & conference. I went again the next year. Then my freshman year I applied for Wisconsin State 4-H drama company. I made it and have grown as a person.

I have known UW-Extension for my lifetime. I was in 4-H for 5-6 years as a child. The last group I joined in my married life was Extension Homemakers, and I learned multiple things for the next 35 years, and five years ago, took the training.
