4-H is a community of young people across America who are learning leadership, citizenship and life skills.
Usually the kids pick a subject they are very interested in. I.e., horses, pigs, cows, etc., then they get involved with that animal/subject and go to county/state fairs, etc.
For instance, you buy a calf. Do everything involved in taking care of that calf, feeding, care, etc. then you take that calf to a fair and enter it for show. Get ribbons, $$$, trophies, etc.
That is just one example.
When I was in 4H, I was involved in horses, poultry, pigs, and sewing. (sewing = I had to make an outfit, enter it and be judged on the outfit)
