#letsgrow4h Calendar Project 

Have you ever struggled to tell someone what 4-H is? Help Clay County SHOW what 4-H is by creating a year long calendar where each month features one of our 12 most popular projects. Looking for photography/visual arts 4-Her's to help create and design this project! This calendar will be shared around the county to show off all that you do and help people understand what 4-H is really about. :) 

Dates/Times will be determined based on members signing up. 
Location will likely be the Clay Co Office for work days/meetings building up to the final step which may require us to meet elsewhere for computers.

Urban Region Jr Leaders

The Jr Leaders group is for any 4-Her's (Community Club, Youth Futures, School Program etc) that is between the ages of 13-18 years old. The purpose of this project is to teach youth the importance of understanding themselves as leaders and how to apply leadership skills in a team setting as well as assist them in identifying opportunities to practice their leadership skills. Beyond leadership and service, Jr Leaders also provides a social network for 4-H teens in the Urban Region.

Shooting Sports

Shooting Sports is a unique 4-H project in that there are social issues and concerns with the Shooting Sports project that other projects do not deal with. Because of this uniqueness, Missouri 4-H has developed some special guidelines and policies for the Shooting  Sports projects.
