The Ohio 4-H Health HEROES program is back! This statewide teen healthy living advocacy group are called HEROES because they serve as Health Education Resources for Outreach, Engagement, and Service. Youth will learn about current issues and topics in healthy living, will be tasked to create an action plan to create change in their local community, and will be a part of a statewide cohort who cares about the health and well-being of Ohio youth.
Benefits of becoming a 4-H Health Hero are:
- Learning about a variety of healthy living topics
- Gaining valuable leadership and communication skills
- Meeting other 4-H youth from across Ohio who are invested in healthy living
- Leaving a positive impact on your family, friends, and community
- Promoting the 4th H!
In previous years we have had youth focus on making change in health topics such as; mental health, vaping, opioids, and more.
Youth who are passionate about health and in grades 9 through 12 may apply! For more information, important dates, and expectations, you may check out https://ohio4h.org/healthheroes. Application is due Sunday, September 11th, 2022 by 11:59 pm.

Kids in the Kitchen – Facebook Live!
Join Emily Marrison and her children, ages 10 and 12, every Thursday in April at 11 a.m. for Kids in the Kitchen – Facebook Live. The Coshocton County Kids in the Kitchen program provides a great opportunity for you and your children to learn how to make kid-friendly recipes, together.
Time conflict? No worries, you can also watch and download the recorded programs and recipes from Ohio State University Extension’s Coshocton County Facebook page at facebook.com. Recipes thus far have included Carrot Cake Pancakes with Maple Cream Cheese Topping, Creamy Peanut Butter Dip, White Chicken Chili, Double Corn Bread, Microwaveable Omelet in a Mug and Chocolate Mug Cake.
Like all of us, school-aged children have been experiencing tremendous change over the past few weeks. Establishing and sticking to a routine is challenging for any family juggling school and possibly working from home. This virtual program could be just the thing to give your children more confidence in the kitchen and get some new healthy snack and meal ideas.
We hope you’ll join us live! Again, programs are every Thursday in April (2, 9, 16, 23 and 30). Check coshocton.osu.edu to view recorded programs.
