Vigo County 4-H

Through 4-H programs in virtually every community in the state, we help young people learn leadership and citizenship, develop life skills, and form attitudes that help them become productive members of society with high self-esteem in both urban and rural areas. We involve parents, caring volunteers, and professional staff who create educational opportunities to youth in the entire community.

Examples of Vigo County programming include: the Vigo County 4-H Fair (July 10-17), 4-H Camp, career preparation trips, STEM activities and robotics challenges, healthy living initiatives, and leadership development. 4-H enrollment is open year-round at for any youth in grades K-12. Adults that are interested in working with Vigo County youth can contact us to learn more about the variety of volunteer opportunities available.

With the Vigo County Fair upon us, it's important to note that this fair is a culmination of many weeks and months of creating, discovering, experimenting, and learning through the 4-H program. We want to share the 4-H schedule for those who are interested in this important community event:
