The Colorado 4-H is the youth division of the Colorado State University Extension program. 4-H had its beginnings in youth instruction offered by college agricultural agents as early as 1910, as part of the outreach mission of the Colorado land grant institution. The 1914 Smith-Lever Act officially established Extension throughout the nation, and some of the earliest projects recorded in the Colorado county agent annual reports pertain to "boys' and girls' clubs," as the 4-H programs were first known (no relation to the Boys and Girls Club of America).
Following their pledge to develop "Head, Heart, Hands, and Health," these boys' and girls' clubs were some of the most successful areas of the Extension program in Colorado from the start. By 1915, participants in clubs were required to keep careful records on matters pertaining to their projects. In 1917, nine projects were offered in club work: cooking, sewing, gardening and canning, poultry, pig, corn, potato, beans, and cow-testing. Colorado club members were present at the Sioux City Interstate Fair in 1919, and at the National Western Stock Show in Denver that same year. The 4-H Round-Up, a week-long event for 4-Hers at the National Western Stock Show, began in 1930. In 1937, Colorado sent its first delegation to the National 4-H Club Camp in Washington, D.C.
Today, the National 4-H program functions as one of the largest out-of-school education programs for boys and girls on a state, national and world level. 4-H operates under the fundamental ideal of "learning by doing", which encourages youth to experiment, innovate and think independently. Currently there are three primary program areas: science, engineering and technology; healthy living; and citizenship. The title of Youth Development encompasses these program areas.
The Records of the Colorado 4-H consists of documents, photographs and artifacts that date from the 1921 to 2007, bulk 1970s to 1990s. The collection includes three-dimensional artifacts, photographs, slides, negatives, computer data, video and audio recordings, publications and manuals, meeting minutes, program and event planning documents and programs, brochures, booklets, and leaflets, newsletters, news clippings, alumni, leader, enrollment, and member lists and reports, annual reports, and scrapbooks and yearbooks. Topics include Colorado 4-H camps; 4-H activities and programs; member services and projects; national, regional, state, and county 4-H events and groups; and agricultural and social reference documents.
This collection is divided into eight format-based series. These series are further divided into subseries that have been arranged alphabetically and chronologically.
The collection consists of eight series in 56 boxes and two large signs:

Acquisition

The Records of the Colorado 4-H were acquired by the Colorado Agricultural Archive as two different accessions in 2008. This was done as the Colorado 4-H moved its offices from Aylesworth Hall to the General Services Building on the Colorado State University campus.

Processing

Processing was completed in March 2010. Document materials were processed using some aspects of minimal processing. Metal paperclips have been removed where possible. Staples have not been removed. Documents were placed in acid-free folders and stored in acid-free boxes. Large format documents and bound materials have been placed in larger format acid-free boxes and padded with acid-free tissue paper. Some large format materials have been stored flat in acid-free folders and separated with acid-free tissue. Photographs contained in scrapbooks and albums have been interleaved with acid-free tissue, and acidic materials within scrapbooks and albums have been buffered with acid-free tissue. Individual photographs re-housed in acid-free folders have been separated with acid-free paper. Negatives have been housed separately from the photographs within acid-free folders. Three-dimensional artifacts have been wrapped in acid-free tissue and stored in acid-free boxes. Some of the smaller artifacts have been stored in acid-free compartmentalized trays and placed in acid-free boxes. Several nitrate negatives have been removed from the bulk of the collection and stored in protective storage. In addition, materials beyond two copies of individual items have been discarded.
