The Kansas 4-H Tip Sheet is a monthly newsletter that provides valuable information to local Extension offices, as well as Kansas 4-H families. The deadlines posted may be different than those set by local Extension offices. In addition, local Extension offices may not be able to provide chaperones and/or transportation to statewide Kansas 4-H events, programs, trainings and activities. Always check with your local Extension office before registering.
