Randolph County 4-H to Host Scavenger Hunt

SPARTA, Ill.— Have you ever wondered what 4-H is all about? Local youth can learn more through a fun scavenger hunt on September 23 at 6 p.m. at the Sparta City Park.

With 6 million members, 4-H is the largest out-of-school youth program in the country. 4-H is in every county in Illinois and our state holds 200,000 members. Open to youth ages 5-18, 4-H makes learning fun! In addition to club meetings and workshops, a variety of projects are offered through 4-H. Members can pick the ones that most interest them and complete the project at their own pace. This gives youth important skills in setting and working toward their goals.

This event is free and open to current 4-H members or youth ages 5-18 interested in learning more about 4-H. If you have questions, please contact the Randolph County Extension Office at (618) 443-4364.

University of Illinois Extension provides equal opportunities in programs and employment. If you need a reasonable accommodation to participate in programming, contact your local registration office. Early requests are strongly encouraged to allow sufficient time for meeting your needs.
