I Pledge

My head to clearer thinking,

My heart of greater loyalty,

My Hands to larger service,

My Health to better living,

For my club, my community, my country and my world.

4-H Emblem

The emblem is a green four-leaf clover with a white H in each leaf. The letters in the emblem stand for
HEAD, HEART, HANDS and HEALTH, the foundation of all 4-H programs.

Learning to think, making decisions, understanding the “whys”, gaining new and valuable knowledge.

Being concerned with the welfare of others, accepting citizenship responsibilities, determining values and attitudes by which to live, learning how to work with others.

Learning new skills, perfecting skills already known, developing pride in work and respect for it.

Practicing healthful living, protecting the well-being of self and others, making conservative use of leisure time.

The four-fold development is vital to every individual. All four of the “H’s” should become an important part of the goals 4-H members identify as they conduct 4-H projects and activities.
