4-H

Texas 4-H is for kids of almost any age. Grades from 3rd-12th are regular 4-H members while grades K-2 can join as Clover Kids (as of September 1 of current school year).

There’s a 4-H activity for everyone. From food science and robotics to fashion design and photography, not to mention livestock projects, there’s sure to be something that sparks your interest. Here is a list of projects that are currently offered in Galveston County. When you request information on a club, just let us know what projects you are interested in and we can help find which club is best for you:

  • Livestock and animal projects (cattle, sheep, goats, swine, poultry, rabbits)
  • Food and Nutrition
  • Clothing and textiles
  • Photography
  • Horse
  • Shooting sports (rifles and shotguns)
  • Dog projects
  • Quilting
  • Veterinary Science
  • Robotics
  • Leadership

How to choose your 4-H project:

– Select a project you like.
– Consider the money and time it will take. Can parents/guardians help?
– Consider the space and equipment that you have at home.
– A 4-H project should be fun, serve a purpose, and be worth the effort.
– Select only the number of projects you can complete. Start small and work your way up!
