4-H in Pope County

  • Pope County September 4-H Clover Update Newsletter Now Available
    The Pope County 4-H Clover Update monthly newsletter contains the latest news and information about 4-H events, deadlines, training, scholarship opportunities, projects and other activities for members, families, and volunteers in your county.
  • Club Treasurer Year End Reporting
    Club Treasurers have an important job in closing out the financial books at the end of each 4-H year (September 30).
  • Record Completion Encouraged
    The purpose of 4-H record keeping is to teach important life skills such as record keeping, planning, organizing, goal setting, utilizing resources wisely, self discipline, critical thinking, problem solving, decision making, and communication. Because of individual differences, youth are encouraged to select from a variety of alternatives to meet their needs and learning styles. 4-H is not just doing, but learning by doing – sharing – understanding – relating – and applying. Record keeping encourages reflection which is a critical step in the learning process. Without reflection, applying what was learned to other situations is difficult.
