What is 4-H?

What is 4-H?

4-H Colors: The 4-H colors are green and white. Green represents life, springtime, and youth. The white symbolizes purity.

4-H Pledge: Written by Otis Hall, the 4-H Pledge is as follows.

I Pledge:
My Head to clearer thinking,
My Heart to greater loyalty,
My Hands to larger service, and
My Health to better living for My Club,
My Community, My Country and My World.

4-H Slogan: The 4-H slogan is “Learn by Doing”. This slogan is a constant incentive to motivate 4-H'ers to strive toward acquiring new skills and knowledge.

4-H Motto: The 4-H motto is “To Make the Best Better”. This motto helps to encourage 4-H'ers not to settle for the present but to always strive to make things better.

4-H Symbol: The 4-H symbol is a green 4 leaf clover with a white H on each leaf representing head, heart, health and hand.
