4-H Youth Development

The Crow Wing County Fair Board has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Crow Wing County Fair due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While 4-H supports this decision, we also acknowledge the loss and disappointment it causes. We are committed to offering an alternative for Crow Wing County youth to showcase their learning and achievements. So keep working on your projects and be sure to ID your animals by June 1. In partnership with the fair board, we will find a way to celebrate your effort and create a pathway to state events.

The mission of Minnesota 4-H Youth Development is to engage youth, in partnership with adults, in quality learning opportunities that enable them to shape and reach their full potential as active citizens in a global community.

Our programs deliver quality, research-based content that nurtures positive partnerships between youth and caring adults in safe learning environments.


4-H clubs contribute to youth who are caring, competent and citizens of character:

  • Learning by doing
  • Practicing leadership
  • Wide variety of projects
  • Positive out-of-school time
  • Science and Arts enrichment
  • Service to communities
  • And fun
