I was just reading an article that states
This may be a regional issue. Since we live in a HIGHLY agricultural area the county is generous with funding. Also our state has a surplus budget in most areas so.......Also it seems like any need that the kids need is covered by one of the local ranching operations if the county or state funds do not cover it. I also know that in the rural area I lived in in FL this was the case, but in the cities they had a harder time getting funding.
We also do not charge kids to join and our kids all get books for whatever projects they are involved in at no charge to them. We also have no problem if a child from one county participates in anther county (or even state since we are on the state line with NE. I have found that the way 4-H operates in one area of the country can be VERY different from how it operates in another.
