(Youth ages 8-10 may apply to help older youth sell on-site).
4-H members enrolled in the entrepreneurship project, and/or participating in local sales booths, are especially encouraged to apply.
Through Show Me 4-H Wares, youth grow confidence, earn their own income, and create value for others, while gaining experience and life skills for career readiness.
