Chautauqua County 4-H Activities

State-wide Events

Club Days

Speaking skillfully before an audience is one of the hallmarks that Kansas 4-H members have been successfully doing for over 100 years. Kansas youth through 4-H have learned the skills necessary to get up before an audience and eloquently speak. 4-H has helped youth learn the skills necessary to clearly organize and present thoughts and ideas through project talks, demonstrations, illustrated talks and public speaking presentations.

  • County 4-H Club Days will be February 26, 2022 at Sedan High School.
  • Regional 4-H Club Days will be March 26, 2022 at Madison High School.

Favorite Food Show

The Favorite Foods Show is an exhibit and contest to encourage 4-H members to learn about meal planning, food preparation and presentation. A "Favorite Food" is chosen, one the 4-H'er likes and likes to prepare. A menu is planned with the food and the table decor is coordinated. Foods chosen maybe main courses, desserts, snacks, breads, casseroles or other.

A recipe card and menu card should be displayed with the proper table setting. The 4-H'er will visit informally with the judge and tell how to prepare and serve the food, why they selected the table service  and dishes, why the centerpiece is appropriate. The 4-H'er should also know some of the nutritional value of the food and be able to discuss that with the judge.

County Favorite Foods Judging will be February 26, 2022

Area Favorite Foods Judging will be June 21, 2022 at the Anderson Building in Emporia

Since 1946, thousands of Kansas 4-H youth have come to Rock Springs Ranch. They unplug, explore, play and learn the kinds of lessons that can last a lifetime. Outside of the traditional learning environment, campers grow socially, emotionally, physically and cognitively. Many make friends for life. It’s also just simple, pure FUN!

The values of 4-H are at the core of Rock Springs Ranch and they guide all of our programming. We believe the lessons learned here can create a foundation for success that will last far beyond their visit.
