Join us to hear from two distinguished 4-H Alumni about their experiences, how 4-H shaped their future and their continued connections with youth and agricultural programs at the University of Minnesota.

For over 100 years, Minnesota 4-H has educated young people about agriculture thru our Animal Science and Agriculture programs. Currently we have nearly 45,000 active youth in these programs. We invite you to join us to recognize and celebrate the links between 4-H and Minnesota agriculture.

The agriculture and food industries stand as the second largest employers in the state. This bedrock to the state’s economy and culture will be the focal point of the Minnesota 4-H Celebration of Agriculture.
