4-H Members – We Need Your Help!

Help us recognize your advisors for all their hard work this year!! Read on for more details – You should have received this email to your Family 4-H email on Friday, Oct. 30th too!

The Junior Leaders are working on a surprise for our Advisors, and we need your help! Each fall, we have an Advisor Banquet where we recognize the Advisors from every club. This year, due to COVID-19, we are going to have a drive-thru event and would like to play a video of ‘Shout Outs’ for our Advisors.

Here’s how you can help:

  • Record a short video giving your advisors a Shout Out
    • What to include in your video:
      • Your Name
      • Your Club
      • Your Advisor Name (or All the Advisors of your club)
      • Message
        • This could include a reason why you think they’re the best, A Thank You for all their hard work, or a favorite memory from this past year
    • Please remember to make sure your background and attire is 4-H appropriate. 😊
  • Upload your video to this FlipGrid Channel: https://flipgrid.com/d1c71b17
  • If you aren’t comfortable with FlipGrid, record a horizontal video on your phone and upload it to the Member Mailbox at go.osu.edu/memmailbox
  • Not comfortable talking on camera? Make a poster or sign for your advisor and we’ll share that too!
  • We would like to highlight every club and Advisor, so you may need to talk with your fellow club members to make sure everyone gets a shoutout.
  • All videos need to be uploaded by Friday, November 13, 2020!
  • Be Creative & Have Fun!

If you have any questions, please contact Aubry (Fowler.443@osu.edu) or by phone: 740-277-4626. Thank you for your help and making our Advisors feel special!

VIRTUAL Cloverbud Day at the Fair 2020

Attention all Fairfield County Cloverbud Members!

In order to keep all Cloverbuds and their families safe, we have decided to make all fair activities virtual. The Fairfield County Senior Fair Board is trying to limit the number of people who attend the Junior Fair and are on the grounds, so we are creating virtual opportunities to celebrate our Cloverbud members.

Below is a list of the virtual opportunities you can take part in:

  • Cloverbud Graduation
    • We will be recognizing Cloverbud members who are ‘graduating’ from the Cloverbud program and will be traditional 4-H members in 2020.
    • Members should have received an email if this applies to them.
    • Cloverbud Graduates will receive a certificate of completion, graduation gift, and recognition. If you would like to be included, please complete the Cloverbud Graduate Survey at osu.edu/CloverbudGraduation by September 25, 2020.
  • Show-N-Tell
    • This is an opportunity for club members to tell about their year in 4-H. All participants will receive a ribbon.
    • If you’re interested in participating in Show-N-Tell, please submit a short video on Flipgrid (https://flipgrid.com/c91f2887). Please remember to be aware of what you’re wearing, what’s in the background, etc when recording your video – We want everyone’s videos to be 4-H Friendly. If you have questions about this just ask!
    • Include in your video:
      •  Name
      • Club
      • Talk about & Show your favorite activity from 4-H this year
    • All video submissions are due by October 5, 2020
  • Stuffed Animal Show
    • Members can select their favorite stuffed animal and “enter the ring”. Each member can share a fun fact about their animal, and have a mini experience of what it’s like to show at the fair. All participants will receive a ribbon.
    • If you’re interested in participating in Show-N-Tell, please submit a short video on Flipgrid (https://flipgrid.com/ab0bb1cb). Please remember to be aware of what you’re wearing, what’s in the background, etc when recording your video – We want everyone’s videos to be 4-H Friendly. If you have questions about this just ask!
    • Include in your video:
      • Name
      • Club
      • Stuffed Animal’s Name
      • Fun Fact about the Stuffed Animal
    • All video submissions are due by October 5, 2020

Just a reminder:

  • All virtual Cloverbud activities are optional
  • All participates who submit a video/photo will be recognized on the Fairfield County 4-H Facebook page, blog and during fair week.
  • Cloverbud events are non-competitive, learning experiences where each exhibitor will receive recognition and a prize for participating. Items of recognition do NOT have to be picked up at the fair in order to keep members and families safe, they can be picked up at the OSU Extension Office or their club advisor will receive them at the end of the year to pass out

If you have questions, please contact Aubry Fowler, Extension Educator, via email Fowler.443@osu.edu or phone 740-277-4626
