All Across Minnesota, kids are reaping the many benefits of 4-H.
They are learning new skills, developing leadership, and having fun! Through
their involvement with 4-H clubs, kids are connecting with both their peers and
adults to gain confidence, knowledge and self-expression.

The 4-Hers of Minnesota are generating the skills to help them paint a brighter
future for themselves, their communities, their country, and even their world.

Stearns County has 22 clubs located throughout the county.
