4-H Youth Development

Murray County 4-H is a unique educational organization open to all youth of Murray County in grades k-12. The program provides young people with knowledge, leadership skills and recreational activities not available elsewhere. We teach youth through "hands on" learning experiences, focused on agricultural and environmental issues, agriculture awareness, leadership, communication skills, foods and nutrition, health, energy conservation, and citizenship. We also assist youth in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills and forming attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive and contributing citizens. The Cloverbuds program is for 4-H'ers kindergarten through fourth grade; Cloverleaf is for grades 4-6 and our Junior/Senior program is for 7-12 grade. Like us on Facebook!


Project Achievement

This is a core program that showcases the work and success of Murray County 4-H'ers through presentations and portfolios on numerous topics. Members compete against their peers at the local, district and state levels in an effort to master their project.
