EXHIBITS

4-H Club

 "4-H had no one beginning. 4-H began as ideas of practical and applied education passed on to rural youth. These ideas came at a time when education in agriculture was advancing at the university level, but not in public schools. Near the turn of the century, as concern for the future of a generation of rural children rose, the movement that would be called 4-H began. Organized by public school educators, 4-H clubs were preceded by corn clubs for boys and canning clubs for girls." [1] Extension services at universities throughout the country created clubs where young people could come and learn more about agriculture and homemaking.

The pictures below show how youth in Utah learned skills as diverse as young men preparing eggs to a young lady showing cattle.
