Hamilton County 4-H will begin accepting submission for the summer art display "Summer of: Cicadas" on April 21, 2021. Youth ages 5-19 are encouraged to submit their creative works capturing the experience of living with these periodic "friends". Youth can submit both print and digital works to be displayed at the Hamilton County Community Fair, the Hamilton County Fair and the Harvest Home Fair in addition to other locations TBD.
4-H Youth Development is truly an inspirational and transformative program for all who participate. Join this week’s teacher and former 4-H member to learn about the intersection of art, gender, race, education, and food policy? From colorful stories about her childhood horse to a lively conversation about justice, Danielle Cozart Steele will enlighten you.

You'll hear reflections on the life of an Extension Educator, the Urban to Rural Divide, the history of that divide, community voice and social justice.
In a year of unprecedented experiences 4-H youth continue to thrive and find ways to succeed.
Prior to the slowdown caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic, Beth Mason had been meeting with Hamitlon County 4-H on her vision to help market and promote 4-H during the Hamilton County Community Fair. Her hard work translated into a social media campaign, promotions plan and innovative programming ideas.

In a typical year Hamilton County 4-H Serves over 2000 youth through this educational and inspirational program.

If any lesson can be learned from the interview between the Ohio 4-H True Leaders for Equity and Caracole, it is that scars do not come from knowledge and compassion, they come from its absence.

The video highlights 4-H’s commitment to lifelong learning and it carries with it the message of love and respect that 4-H has for all people.
