4-H Impact September 2022

  • The Sheboygan County Fair brings thousands of people and hundreds of 4-H members and families together to showcase their project work and 4-H learning to the community and beyond. It is the premiere event where belonging, mastery, independence, and generosity of our youth come together. This year Sheboygan COunty fair was by far a high point of the year for existing members and was also a key highlight in reaching out to prospective members. Over 43 new young people and 6 adult volunteers expressed an interest in joining the Sheboygan County 4-H Program throughout the course of the fair by completing an interest card. By doing so they earned themselves a free Spark T-shirt promoting the idea of Spark: A passion that brings purpose and joy.
  • The 4-H Open House is coming up on Tuesday, September 27, 2022 and will take place at the 4-H Youth Building at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds. This is a purposeful event designed to promote our clubs and projects to the public. Youth from throughout the county are encouraged to attend through school promotions, newspaper and radio ads, community calendars, and other outreach efforts. Each year we anticipate reaching over 100 new families and typically enroll approximately 75% of these into our 4-H Community Club Program.
