Leaders, Parents and Guardians: During 2005, Shawano County 4-H Leaders, Inc. developed and adopted a policy on Alcohol, Tobacco and any illegal substances.  This was in response to a few instances where adults should have used some restraint in their actions.  Please read the policy below and just keep in mind that alcohol, tobacco and any illegal substances are not to be consumed by 4-H leaders, parents or guardians at 4-H events.  If anyone has any questions please contact the 4-H Agent at 715-526-6136.  Leaders, please make sure that all adults connected with your club are aware of our policy.

Shawano County 4-H Leaders, Inc. policy on alcohol, tobacco and any illegal substances: The Shawano County 4-H Program is designed to support the positive and successful development of all youth.  4-H leaders, parents and all other cooperating adults are essential partners in creating a positive environment by focusing on the strengths of youth and providing positive ways for youth to meet their four basic needs:  Caring Relationships (Belonging), Constructive Learning Experiences (Mastery), Leadership Opportunities (Independence) and Service to Communities (Generosity).  In Addition, 4-H strives to promote healthy lifestyles.

To facilitate positive youth development and encourage youth to engage in positive, healthy activities and social events, it is the policy of Shawano County 4-H Leaders, Inc. that alcohol, tobacco and illegal substances are not allowed at any 4-H sponsored events on the club, county, state or national level.  All adults and 4-H members attending 4-H events are expected to refrain from consuming alcohol, smoking, using smokeless tobacco products and consuming any illegal substances at 4-H events.  This includes 4-H softball games, dances, club meetings, project meetings, club achievement banquets, field trips, county fair activities, state fair activities, camping trips, etc.

Exceptions to this policy could include:

  • Legal use in designated areas separate from 4-H Activities and separate from direct supervision or observation of 4-H members attending such activities. (Example:  On midway during County or State Fair, in private vehicle, in separate public bar areas or private hotel rooms.)
  • Legal use while in the presence of your own children who are 4-H members, in areas separate from 4-H activities.

It is further expected that adults will not supervise 4H Activities while under the influence of alcohol or illegal substances.

Any questions on this policy should be directed to the Shawano County University of Wisconsin Extension Office at 311 North Main St,  Shawano, WI   54166.  Phone 715-526-6136
