4-H Clubs

Elementary School 4-H

(5th Grade In-School Program)

Henry County 4-H partners with Henry County Schools to bring 5th graders an educational program that focuses in two main areas: public speaking and hands-on career exploration.

Fifth graders will present an illustrated speech in class choosing from a list of 50+ different project areas. They will also have an opportunity to compete in our County Project Achievement Competition each January. If they place 1st, 2nd or 3rd place at the County Level, they will then be able to compete at the District Project Achievement Competition. Only 1st and 2nd place in the food lab category will advance on to District.

Fifth graders will have fun in their classes learning through hands-on career based programming which has been developed to compliment the 5th grade College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) . Students will take part in lessons in four career exploration categories: Finance, Marketing, Information Technology, and Government & Public Administration.
