4-H University!


Each year 4-H members who are in the 8th-12th grade as of September 1, 2020 are eligible to participate in 4-H University to demonstrate their skills in more than 30 competitive events. It is a culmination of a 4-H member’s year of hard work and dedication. Events range from Agricultural Use Demonstration, Automotive Care, Fishing, Sports, Public Speaking, Fashion Revue, and more! Through competing, youth demonstrate life skills in teamwork, decision making, problem solving, resiliency, and many more. Each competitive event allots youth an opportunity for personal growth, skill mastery, and other life skills vital to functioning members of society.

This year 4-H U will be an in-person event, but it will still be different than what we are used to. Events will be taking place over the entire month of June. Large events where all participants attend will be streamed virtually. There are many face to face contest and they will mostly be held in Alexandria. Some Contests are partially or entirely virtual.

Please let us know as soon as you can if you are interested in participating. We want to make sure we have enough time to get you prepared for your contest! blafargue@agcenter.lsu.edu
