Raise Your Hand for 4-H!

Ohio is currently in the lead for the National 4-H Raise Your Hand Campaign and we would like to keep it that way! Ohio won last year and received $20,000! Licking County 4-H members and alumni did such a good job, that we were one of the top counties in the state and received $2,000 for Licking County 4-H! We would love to win again, but we need your help. Please go to https://4-h.org/raise-your-hand/ to raise your hand for Ohio and Licking County 4-H!
