What is the Ford County 4-H Council?

The Ford County 4-H Council is made up of youth and adult representatives from each 4-H club within Ford County. This group plans many of the 4-H activities and events which take place at the county level. While participating, 4-H youth are able to learn a variety of leadership skills by serving on various committees and service projects, such as 4-H Achievement Awards Program events and Dodge City Days activities.
