I pledge my head to clearer thinking,
my heart to greater loyalty,
my hands to larger service,
and my health to better living,
for my club, my community
my country and my world.

Responding to the 1918 national contest, Otis Hall, the first Kansas state leader, wrote the winning 4-H club pledge. It was selected and approved by state club leaders at the first National 4-H Club Camp in 1927 and officially adopted as the national 4-H club pledge in 1947.

It brings special pride to Kansas as 4-H'ers nationwide recite the 4-H club pledge.
