The new year is a time for resolutions, many of which include getting healthier by eating better foods and exercising more. While health has always been one of the cornerstones of 4-H, clubs across Kentucky will ramp up their health efforts during the 4-H Health Month in February to encourage young people to develop healthy habits.
Kentucky 4-H is participating in the 4th H for Health Challenge and has teamed up with the Health Kids Out of School Initiative and Tufts University School of Nutrition to offer this program.

You may have had times in your adult life where you have thought, “I wish I had learned that in school” or “I have no idea how to do that.” When it comes to many adult topics, like how to make a will or how home mortgages work, we often find ourselves learning as we go.

Kentucky 4-H was the recipient of a “Tech Takeover” grant sponsored by National 4-H Council and Hughes Net. In this video campers are learning about parallel circuits, LED lights and conductive thread to make light up bracelets. This activity served as an introduction to adding electronics to fashion design. Youth participated at J.M. Feltner 4-H camp and many other summer camps held across the state. The LED bracelets is one of the Smart Clothing activities found in the Style Engineers Fashion Through Science curriculum.
