Welcome to UGA Extension WordPress Sites.

Jackson County 4-H continues to enrich students and volunteers through leadership, community outreach projects and public speaking. Project Achievement is one of the largest and most exciting, challenging and rewarding programs offered by Georgia 4-H. Students choose an area of interest, research a topic, then write and give an oral presentation. For Cloverleaf 4-H’ers, this process is about hands on learning, self-confidence and sharing knowledge. Competition begins at the school level in Jackson County, and students can then advance to the district level. At the school level, Jackson County had 415 competitors in 2019. The District level is hosted in our home county, with more than 700 in attendance in 2019. The Northeast District Competition in March included 10 counties with 339 students.

Our specialty clubs and camp seasons continue to thrive, including the Love of Llama club, which is the only of its kind in the state. The Jackson County BB Team attended Daisy Nationals in Arkansas with six 4-H’ers and placed 55th overall. With an increase in middle school youth, Jackson County attended Junior Conference at Rock Eagle 4-H Center with 15 students and tied for first place in the Northeast District for most attendees.

There are more than 1,280 active students in the 4-H program. In addition to in-school meetings and specialty clubs, Jackson County served an additional 5,150 students through community events.

With 166 adult volunteer leaders in the Jackson County program, volunteers served more than 4,000 hours in 2019, thus making Jackson County’s specialty clubs, community outreach programs and 4-H events a huge success.
