Southwind District

Welcome to Southwind 4-H!

We're excited about you and your family becoming a part of our 4-H program.  The information on this page will help you navigate getting started, because in the beginning, learning about 4-H and its benefits can be a bit overwhelming.  Our 4-H Agent Jennifer Terrell, or our 4-H Program Assistant MaKayla Stroud, are always happy to answer any questions you may have.  They can be reached at 620-244-3826.


The "Learn by Doing" philosophy encourages 4-H members to plan and organize monthly meetings, community service projects, and other club activities. 4-H members can choose from more than 30 projects, each providing the participant a chance to explore a new topic, while developing new skills. Many of the projects have knowledgeable adults willing to assist the youth; however, other projects will be done independently at home with assistance from parents. 4-H members will have several opportunities to talk about and present their projects through club meetings, project shows, or the county fair.
