12 youth leaders from across Canada are the recipients of this year’s TD 4-H Agriculture Scholarships. The scholarships, totalling $30,000 in funds for 2022, have been generously provided by TD Bank Group, with each of the 12 4-H members receiving $2,500 toward their post-secondary education in agriculture, agricultural science, or agricultural business this coming fall.
Today's 4-H program includes many exciting projects
and gives urban and rural youth and adults life-long skills such as
co-operation, leadership, critical thinking, decision making,
organization, public speaking, and community service.

Latest News & Events
For the first time since 2019, youth from across the province will be speaking up for agriculture in-person. The Alberta Young Speakers of Agriculture board has decided to hold its annual competition at the Calgary Stampede.
4-H Canada is pleased to announce a renewed partnership commitment supporting youth in Canada, with Cargill investing over $450,000 in the 4-H movement across Canada by 2024.
We Believe in Strong Families
Parent interest and cooperation is a major factor in determining the child’s attitude towards club activities. The parents/ families of these 4-H members play a large role in the success of the club.
Alberta 4-H Centre
The Alberta 4-H Centre sits on the land of Battle Lake. The lakes name is a translation from Cree and refers to frequent conflicts between the Blackfoot and Cree in the region near the Battle River.
4-H is such a worthwhile program. By offering 4-H within the school day, it becomes accessible to so many more youth, especially those at risk whose parents or guardians may not be able to pay the fees or get them to extracurricular 4-H clubs. The school 4-H program also allows students who struggle academically the opportunity to learn in a hands-on environment. Through the variety of project options available, the 4-H program ensures all students are engaged and learning.
School Board Trustee
I was too young to be in our school 4-H club when it first started but I got to see my sister in it. I could not wait to be able to try the projects and be in Achievement Day when I was old enough. Now I am involved and it is great, we actually get options at our school now. I hope we always have the school 4-H program.
When the 4-H program was proposed as a possible option in our school, I was very excited that my children would have the opportunity to partake in such a leadership program. I was already familiar with 4-H having been a former member and Ambassador in Manitoba and I did not have any hesitations whatsoever.
We know that schools can offer a lot of options to students but the 4-H program offers practical skills, a leadership building role, and communication training all of which enhance the school experience and help prepare students for life after school. I would highly recommend this program to any schools and families.
