Welcome to the U of I Owyhee County Extension Office


We welcome those ages 5-7 (as of January 1) to explore one or more of the following Cloverbud activities as an introduction to some of the projects we offer in our Owyhee County 4-H program:

Participation. Cloverbud members may be enrolled in non-animal, or lap animal activities. Lap animals are defined as: rabbits, cavies, cats, small dogs that weigh less than the member, chickens and mini-goats. Cloverbuds may not be involved in large animal projects, competitive situations, and projects involving firearms or motorized vehicles. 4-H insurance policies, including the University of Idaho liability coverage for volunteers, will not cover youth or adults working with youth under the age of 8, involved in these activities.

Activity Book Interviews.  If a Cloverbud would like to experience an oral interview and discuss their completed activity with a judge, they are most welcomed to do so. These interview are held at the end of July, just prior to Fair. To reserve a time and to be sure we have enough judges, they will need to sign up for an interview time in the same manner as the older 4-H participants. After the interview they will leave their Activity Book with the judge and it will be added to their club’s display at Fair, so please be sure it is signed by their club leader prior to the interview. A participation ribbon or similar recognition will be awarded.

Fair Entries. If your Cloverbud would like to display their activities at the Fair, please submit their fair entries online in the same manner as the older 4-H and FFA members. This helps in the planning of display space for their club, and ensures that we will have enough participation ribbons for the Cloverbud Department. ALL CLOVERBUD ENTRIES SHOULD BE SUBMITTED IN THE CLOVERBUD DEPARTMENT. The deadline for fair entries is July 15 at midnight. Fair exhibits by Cloverbuds are non-competitive and are optional. Exhibits are an opportunity to show what they have accomplished. A Cloverbud may exhibit, but they are not required to do so. A participation ribbon or similar recognition will be awarded.
