4-H State Youth (Thriving) Survey 2021 – Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who completed the 2021 Wisconsin 4-H Youth Survey!

A total of 2,647 4-H Members ages 13+, representing 72 counties completed this year’s survey – that’s more than 25% of members in that age-range!

The survey asks questions about how the 4-H experience is related to positive outcomes for youth. The results will be ready soon and will be shared with youth, volunteers, and families to show why 4-H matters and where we need to improve. The data will also be used by 4-H county staff for planning purposes.

Here are a few things youth said they learned in 4-H:

  • 4-H has helped me a lot with speaking in front of groups.
  • About all of the science of animals
  • As a creative person, I often prefer individual projects. However, 4-H has offered a strong supplement for me in leadership and social involvement, things I might not have sought otherwise elsewhere. Along with it, 4-H has in turn nurtured my creative projects and allowed me many ways to present them to other people.
  • Be confident in who you are
  • Community service makes me feel good
  • I have learned so many life lessons in 4-h especially responsibility and leadership.
  • I learned how to be a better leader and better person by having friends, adults and mentors in 4-H. I also learned that your animal showing friends will always be by your side.

And the winners are!
