Since 1904, the Georgia 4-H program has taught Georgia youth lifelong leadership skills. What began as a program to teach new farming techniques has grown into a program that builds character and self-confidence.

A publication covering the past 100 years of Georgia 4-H, "Georgia 4-H: Historic Past, Dynamic Future," has been published in honor of the statewide youth program's centennial celebration.

The limited edition Georgia 4-H history book cost $34.95 each or can be ordered in bulk at a reduced rate of $26.95 for 25 or more copies. The price of the history book will rise to $39.95 on March 1.
