4-H is a national youth program for boys and girls from ages 8 to 18. 4-H members have fun, learn by doing, make new friends, and help others feel good about themselves.

There are a wide variety of unique projects, including pet care, food preparation, aerospace, arts and crafts, leadership, and livestock – over 100 opportunities! Bingham County projects are exhibited at the Bingham County Fair. Top projects are then eligible to exhibit at the Eastern Idaho State Fair in Blackfoot.

There are other exciting activities such as camps, fairs, day camps, judging contests, and community service for 4-H members. The 4-H year is October 1 through September 30.
