Welcome to Meadowlark 4-H

Welcome to the Meadowlark District 4-H Youth Development web page for new families! Youth must be age 7 on January 1 to be a regular 4-H member. An introductory program called Cloverbuds is available for youth ages 5 and 6.

The key to understanding 4-H and all of the great opportunities it entails is to get involved and ask questions. We look forward to welcoming you to our 4-H family! Questions about joining 4-H can be directed to a staff member located on the right side of this page.

Joining 4-H is easy as 1-2-3-4-5!
