my dd has the opportunity to join 4-h at shcool and she wants to but i dont know much about it and was hoping some of you may be able to give me some more info. Shes already in student council chorus enrichment/advanced classes girl scouts swimming and she will be starting childrens theater soon so i am curious if 4-h may be too mmuch for her (but knowing my child and how much she enjoys the challenges that comes with these extra curriculars it wouldnt be) I dont really know what they do and what may be required of her so any info you may have would be great!

My dd has done 4-H for three years now. It is a VERY positive orginazation. It is mainly for education. We live in a farming community and for some parents there is no question about doing it. My dd has done the Mini4-H. We sign up,choose from a list of activities to try-sewing,gardening even animalsÂ and send the forms to the extension office. Then in early spring you get these pamphlets in the mail that are educational and tell you how to do a project that your child can then display at the local 4-H fair. Third grade and up are grouped together by age and grade then they can recieve ribbons that I believe are judged by college students that are also 4-Hers. My dd has done posters and trained our dog to be shown. We have had a bunny at the fair. She also did horseback riding one year after a long summer ofÂ english riding lessons. It's fun and educational but if your dd is already doing a lot,it may just be to much.
