4-H Clip Art
The 4-H Youth Development Program is the youth outreach from the Land Grant Universities, Cooperative Extension Services, and the United States Department of Agriculture. The 4-H Name & Emblem is intended to represent the ideals of the program with its focus on Head, Heart, Hands, and Health. Today, it is one of the best-known and most valued images emblematic of a century of 4-H achievement. The 4-H Name & Emblem is very important to us as an organization because it represents who we are. Be sure to read the link contained in this folder regarding the guidelines and use of all 4-H graphic files.
