Pasco 4H and Youth Development
In 4H young people have the opportunity to "experience" through "hands-on" learning and discovery in project areas such as foods and nutrition, sewing, hiking, citizenship, community service, photography, large and small animals, lap animals, horses, and more. Older 4H members develop leadership skills by assisting and instructing younger 4H members.
In the late 1800s the idea of 4H was born when one-acre corn contests were organized for boys in various parts of the nation. The first 4H program that was affiliated with a University as we know it today began in Holmes County, Mississippi in 1907. A school superintendent organized 120 boys in a corn contest through sponsorship of the Mississippi State College of Agriculture.
