4-H: The Power of Youth!

Come and find the 4-Hers at the fair! You’ll find them wearing the traditional 4-H logo – a green four-leaf clover with white “H” on each leaf representing Head, Heart, Hands and Health. Sponsored by the University of Hawaii Cooperative Extension, 4-H members are the youngest bunch of “students” from Hawaii’s land-grant university! In 2018, we celebrate 100 years of 4-H in Hawaii. The first 4-H club started in Haiku, Maui with 31 plantation boys led by UH Experiment Station Director, Frederick Krauss.

Youth and adult volunteers will operate the 4-H Petting Zoo during limited hours each day under the Livestock tent, located next to the county baseball field. Bring a child to share the experience of cuddling up to a bunny, petting a tame chicken or hanging out with a cute piglet. Take advantage of a teachable moment to develop an appreciation for animals and agriculture. Cost to enter is $2.00 a person. All proceeds of the zoo will benefit the Kauai 4-H Federation, a not-for-profit organization that provides educational and leadership opportunities for youth. During the year, the 4-H Federation provides opportunities for youth to lead, learn and grow through workshops, leadership trainings, conferences and service learning projects. With the help of adults, youth plan and implement these activities while developing valuable life skills.

4-H activities will take place under the Livestock Tent during the four-day fair.

  • The 4-H Petting Zoo will take place from 7:30-9:00 p.m. on Thursday, 7:30-9:00 p.m. on Friday, 3:30-5:00 p.m. and 7:30-9 p.m. on Saturday, and 12:30-2:00 on Sunday. For your health and safety, we will have hand washing stations, but remember that no food, beverages, baby bottles and sipper cups should be brought to areas where animals are present.

  • Want to harvest your own fresh eggs? We’ll have Cinnamon Queen chicks (a Rhode Island derivative) that can lay 320 eggs a year. Limited quantities will be sold for $5.00 each on a first come, first served basis on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night at 9:15 p.m. All remaining chicks on display will be sold on Sunday at 2:00 p.m. You must bring your own container to purchase these egg layers.

  • Come and learn about the many things 4-H has to offer. There is something for everyone and you’ll discover that it’s much more than raising livestock! Sign up as a 4-H volunteer and experience the rewarding feeling of helping others!

For more information on 4-H, come and talk to us at the fair or call the University of Hawaii Cooperative Extension Office at 274-3471.
