The 4-H Advisory Committee is made up of 4-H Volunteers. Members are nominated and elected by all current volunteers to serve a three-year term. The county is divided into four areas, with three representatives from each area and 1/3 of the membership up for election each year. There are two youth members elected to serve a one year term each, one selected from Junior Fairboard and one from Junior Leaders. The youth members have equal membership on the committee. Members of the 4-H Advisory Committee help provide input and guidance into the overall Brown County 4-H program. Additionally, they assist with selecting youth to represent the county at various state level events such as Citizenship Washington Focus. This committee also works to raise funds to help offset the cost of 4-H events and provide scholarships, this includes covering the cost of liability insurance for members and volunteers, fair passes for members, and 4-H camp scholarships. 

If you have recommendations, comments or concerns, please contact a member of the 4-H Advisory Committee.
