Valentines for Seniors

Thank you, thank you, thank you! When we first sent out that we needed 80 valentines for seniors, I never would have expected getting over 200!! Thanks to each of you who contributed, we were able to hand out valentines to seniors at a drive-thru event yesterday and even made the paper because of it. We definitely hope we made some seniors days and could not have done it without all your help!

*Special shoutout to Mackenzie Langford and Halle Morehead for helping at yesterday’s drive-thru event!

  • Quality Assurance will be due by June 1st for 2021 (ODA rule)
  • We will have multiple options available (Online, in-person, etc.)
  • We will know more around the first week of March and will send out an update with our plans.

Thank you for your patience as we plan for this year!

Permission to Participate Form for Horse, Dog, Shooting Sports and ATV

Permission to Participate forms are now collected virtually through 4-H Online 2.0! This will help cut down on collecting forms for club advisors with these projects. Once a youth member signs up for one of these projects, they will be walked through the extra forms to sign off.

Advisors – you do not need to collect hard copies of these forms anymore!


Window Decorating and Promotion for Ohio 4-H Week 

This year, our 4-H window decorating and promotion will take place during Ohio 4-H Week March 7-13th. Your club can participate in a few ways to get information out about our program and how to join!

  1. Promote 4-H by
  • decorating a business window,
  • setting up a 4-H display in a school,
  • promoting 4-H with posters/signs in the community,
  • or promoting 4-H in your own yard!


*You must get permission from the location to set-up and you must also tear it down/clean up at the end of the week (or as long as the location allows).

  1. Send a picture to the Extension office of your 4-H promotion in the County. Also include the name and location address of the business/school you are promoting by March 6th at 11:59 pm.
  2. Participating clubs will be able to count this in their 2022 Honor Club Application.
