Events & Opportunities

At the local level, 4-H'ers enjoy numerous opportunities for social, hands-on learning, competitive, and community service events. For your county’s 4-H event calendar, please contact your local 4-H county office. At the state level, 4-H opportunities are generally broken into the three Cs: camps, competitions  and conferences. Several state opportunities don’t necessarily have a “C” category and are highlighted on this page for your convenience.
