    Head, Heart, Hands, Health = 4H

    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)

    Good explanation mommadog but you forgot to mention that 4-H clubs are sponsored and run by the county extention agents and programs, thus the politics take over. FFA is a School District operated function. Politics just about as bad but not quite.
