    About 4H:
The goal of 4-H is to develop citizenship, leadership, responsibility and life skills of youth ages 5 to 21, through experiential learning programs and a positive youth development approach. Though typically thought of as an agriculturally focused organization as a result of its history, 4-H today focuses on citizenship, healthy living, science, engineering, and technology programs.The name represents four personal development areas of focus for the organization: head, heart, hands, and health. In Hart County4H clubs involve youth from 9 to 19 years of age, and if you are under 9 you can be a Cloverbud (pre-4H'er) and participate in county club activities!  4-H projects are hands-on learning experiences that can introduce you to exciting new hobbies & future career possibilities. There are many projects to choose from, a 4-H project is a learn-by-doing adventure!!

About FFA:
The National FFA Organization is an American youth organization, specifically a career and technical student organization, ages 12 and up, based on middle and high school classes that promote and support agricultural education. The organization was founded in 1928 as Future Farmers of America, but in 1988 the name was changed to the National FFA Organization, now commonly referred to as simply FFA. The organization is for those with diverse interests in the food, fiber and natural resource industries, encompassing science, business and technology in addition to production agriculture.
