4-H Cloverbud Project: Last Updated 6/1/2016
Cloverbuds are special members with a 4-H age of 5-7 years old.
4-H age is the age of the individual on December 31 of the current 4-H year.
The overall purpose of the 4-H Cloverbuds program is to foster the development of life skills that are essential for the cognitive, social, emotional and physical maturation of Kindergarten through 3rd graders by providing a unique educational opportunity. Cloverbuds do not participate in competitive events or long-term projects. They cannot handle animals, firearms or equipment (even if they own it) during 4-H events or functions. Cloverbuds are not project focused, rather they are activity focused.
