Ohio's 4-H Cloverbud Program is for youth age 5 and in kindergarten until they reach age 8 and in the third grade.

Cloverbuds explores areas of a healthy lifestyle, earth/environment, citizenship, plants and animals, consumerism and family science, science and technology, personal development, and community expressive arts.

The primary goal of the Cloverbud program is to promote children's healthy development—mentally, physically, socially, and emotionally. The Cloverbud program provides an excellent opportunity for every child to reach his or her highest potential because early life experiences, even subtle ones, affect future development.

Cloverbuds will have the chance to “Show and Tell” a judge about one item they brought with them to judging. This will be a noncompetitive judging opportunity for our Cloverbuds to talk about their Cloverbud year. Cloverbuds can bring their Cloverbud book(optional) and one item they made to show the judge. It will take place the same day as Project Judging on July 9th.  Everyone who participates will get a special ribbon they can keep or display in their club fair booth.
