 Social Media:

We want everyone to see how amazing your county 4-H is, so please share your 4-H story on your social medial platforms. I will be sharing your posts on our County 4-H page along with featuring 4-H members who have gone above and beyond with their citizenship projects. Let’s turn social media green!

 4-H Club Newspaper Display:

4-H Club Articles in the Local Newspaper: Each club should have their Reporter write a short article about their club and how they are Inspiring Kids To Do. This is a great way to publicize your club and your county 4-H in general. Don't forget to grab a newspaper and see what your club Reporter has written!

 Dress in 4-H Swag:

During the whole week, make sure to dress in your 4-H gear! Send me pictures of you wearing your 4-H swag for a chance to be featured on the County 4-H Facebook  page! The youth member that shows their 4-H swag the most throughout the week will win a special prize!

 Tractor Supply:  Each spring and fall, Tractor Supply helps raise money for 4-H programs through the sale of Paper Clovers in their stores. 90% of funds raised go back to state and local 4-H programs. This fall the 2019 4-H Paper Clover Campaign will run from October 9-20, 2019 and this is located in your 4-H Guidebook. We will have a Bake Sale and also still be collecting nonperishable food items to donate to local food pantries.  For this to be a success, we will need 4-H'ers to bring baked goods that are packaged to sell for $1. This is a come and go as you can event. We encourage all 4-H members and their families to come out and help us with this special day!

Please let Kacey know if you will be able to help at kacey.olivo@okstate.edu !
