The Countywide 4-H Meeting will be this Sunday, February 28 at 3 p.m on Zoom. This month we will share tips and tricks to help you successfully complete your 4-H project(s). We will also have pledges, county updates, a 4-H swag drawing for members present, and virtual recreation. Log on at https://go.osu.edu/Adams4HCareers.
Please have a piece of paper (copy, construction, cardstock, or colored) and crayons or markers to complete our community service project.
Clubs interested in a breakout room after the county meeting, please contact me prior to the meeting. All 4-H members and their families are invited to attend!
Parents/guardians are responsible for maintaining care, custody, and control of their minor(s) and are responsible for monitoring the activities their child is participating in. If you have a disability and have questions about accessibility or wish to request accommodations, please contact Kristy Watters at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2021 Adams County 4-H enrollment is open! Visit oh.4honline.com to enroll for the new project year. 4-H Online has a new look this year, but appears to be more user friendly.
To log in, use your email address that is on file with the Extension office and the password you created for 4-H Online. If you don’t remember your password, you can choose “reset password” on the home page of 4-H Online. If you are not sure which email address you use, please contact the office.

Kids College will be held Saturday, April 18, 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. at the Ohio Valley Career & Technical Center. We have a great lineup of offerings to help members get a jump start on their projects or explore new interests. We have some returning favorites like Fun with Food, Cake Decorating and Fishing with Phipps and some exciting new offerings including Sewing Basics and STEM with GE.
We are pleased to once again partner with Southern State Community College as a sponsor. This partnership allows us to provide additional materials for members to take with them to further their project exploration. Kids College registration form and course guide can be found at https://adams.osu.edu/program-areas/4-h-youth-development/kids-college or at the Extension Office. Courses will be filled on a first come, first served basis and registrations and fees are due to the office by Friday, April 3, 2020.
Pre-fair 4-H Project judging for all non-livestock projects will be held on Monday, June 24 at the West Union High School from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Schedules for specific project times will be posted in early June. Food and nutrition project members will participate in the Food and Nutrition Skillathon during their scheduled time slot. New for 2019, the clothing project Style Review will also take place at pre-fair judging. Clothing members should come prepared to model their outfit.
Again in 2019, we will offer an early project judging for still/non-livestock projects on Wednesday, June 12 at the Extension Office. 4-H Members who have a legitimate excuse (school trip, vacation, etc.) for missing the June 24 project judging may email email@example.com or call the Extension Office at 937-544-2339 to register their project(s) for early judging no later than Friday, June 7. We will schedule time and location after we know how many are registered. These members will be eligible for awards and State Fair entry. This option should only be utilized if the member absolutely cannot make it to our regular judging on June 24. There is a make-up judging on Thursday, June 27 at the Extension Office. Members participating in the June 27 make-up judging will not be eligible for awards or State Fair entry but will be able to complete their project(s).
