2013 National 4-H Week

Join over 240,000 young people in Louisiana in celebrating the many years of accomplishment and service the 4-H organization has provided during National 4-H Week slated for October 6-12, 2013.
 
Did you know that 4-H is the nation’s largest youth organization? Worldwide, there are over 6 million youth who participate. 4-H is in all 64 Louisiana parishes, in all 50 states and in more than 80 countries. Over 240,000 of Louisiana’s young people are involved in 4-H. All you have to do is look at your local level to find young people taking the lead in addressing today’s challenges. In Louisiana, 4-H is a part of LSU AgCenter Cooperative Extension. 4-H takes research-based information from the nation’s land-grant universities to youth in urban, small-town and rural communities. In Louisiana, 4-H is headquartered on the Louisiana State University campus in Baton Rouge.

Using the four-leaf clover for its emblem, each leaf carries an H. The four H's on the four-leaf clover stand for head, heart, hands and health. 4-H follows the philosophy of learning by doing. Youth develop life skills through hands-on projects that range from citizenship to expressive arts, communication to foods and nutrition, and leadership to science and technology. 4-H is for youth in grades 4 through 12. Youth can belong to 4-H individually or as members of clubs and groups. They can make new friends, visit new places, go on trips, attend workshops and conferences, host meetings and help their communities. 4-H is where young people explore, learn and discover in a safe environment. In 4-H, youth find their true passions, gain confidence and give back to their community. Celebrate 4-H as youth step up and take responsibility for their future and ours. You will find a National 4-H Week Kit designed for Louisiana attached to this e-mail.

National 4-H has also prepared a Promotional Toolkit that you can utilize to celebrate National 4-H Week. The link for the toolkit is below:
