The Haskell County 4-H Share-the-Fun program is a talent and skit event involving all ages of youth, 5-19 years of age. Share-the-Fun is an opportunity for 4-H members to get on stage and “share -the-fun” with other 4-H members, as they develop poise, self-confidence and skill by appearing before an audience with their talented performances.
