The Mini 4-H Program in Carroll County is designed specifically for youth in the 2nd grade on March 1 of the current year. Mini 4-H’ers will be able to explore several project areas that interest them at a noncompetitive level. Projects can then be displayed at the 4-H Fair, and be awarded a special Mini 4-H ribbon for projects completed.
Mini 4-H serves as an introduction to the "regular" 4-H program. 4-H’ers are able to gain self-confidence and increase their self-esteem. 4-H provides youth guidance while learning a variety of skills. 4-H allows adults and youth to build positive supportive relationships. Youth develop pride and skills in their ability to complete and display their projects. The intent is to allow the 4-H’er to have fun, enhance youth development, and readiness for regular 4-H participation.
