The Ohio 4-H Foundation Board has recently voted to add 3 young alumni positions to the Foundation Board beginning January 1, 2022.  The application for alumni to apply that is due by August 1, 2021. 2022 Young Alumni Application Final

The positions they are looking to fill are for 4-H alumni ages 21-30.  The board will be looking for diversity in all aspects for the 3 candidates they choose.  It will be important that these members have time to devote to a new alumni pen pal program, and can advocate from the young alumni perspective to the board.

We are very excited about this new opportunity to better engage young 4-H alumni!  Please let me know if you have any questions.

Spring 4-H Paper Clover Promotion begins 4/28/21 at Tractor Supply Co.!

Tractor Supply proudly began their partnership with 4-H in 2010 and they have since helped raise over $14 million through our Paper Clover fundraisers. The success of these campaigns has impacted over 69,000 students by providing them with hands-on learning experiences through projects in STEM, agriculture, healthy living, and civic engagement.

100% of funds raised through our two Paper Clover fundraisers directly benefit 4-H and the kids and teens they work with – 80% of donations directly support 4-H youth in Fairfield County and 10% goes to Ohio 4-H, and the remaining 10% supports national 4-H programming. We are so fortunate to have TSC stores in Pickerington, Carroll, and Lancaster.

The 2021 Spring Paper Clover Promotion will begin April 28, 2021 and run through May 9, 2021. Stop by a Fairfield County 4-H store and support 4-H!
