A fixture for 165+ Years

August 13, 2021 - 6:38pm -- staubach.9@osu.edu

There aren’t many institutions that make it to 165 years old. But the Hamilton County Agricultural Society can proudly carry that flag.

In a city like Cincinnati, it is easy to take for granted the longevity of the Hamilton County Agricultural Society, but their tenacity and passion must be celebrated.

Established in 1819 by William Henry Harrison, the Hamilton County Fair, the oldest county fair in Ohio, was held in 1820. In 1855 it moved to the current location in the Carthage neighborhood.

ChickQuest: Let's Learn about Life

April 23, 2021 - 10:24am -- staubach.9@osu.edu

They are fluffy, they are cute, and they are part of the food system. Hamilton County ChickQuest is well underway with the first clutch of chicks finding their new home on Friday, April 23, 2021.

This spring more than 600 eggs were incubated, hatched, and cared for by students across Hamilton County. From the youth in the urban core to those in the far reaches of the county, every teacher shared the same story of wonder and excitement, frustration, and relief.

If you have never hatched an egg, it is not a terribly difficult process if you have the right equipment.

Spring is just around the corner and that means it is ChickQuest season!

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

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic we are forced to re-evaluate how to best serve our county youth and take the necessary steps to ensure that the programs we offer educate, inspire, and protect our community.

#4HEquity

February 19, 2021 - 11:10am -- staubach.9@osu.edu

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 interview included in this message showcases two 4-H members interviewing a valuable community partner of Hamilton County 4-H, Caracole.

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.
