Container Gardening Contest

Your container garden entry should be suitable for growing flowers, plants, or vegetables. It should be made from recycled or reused materials or objects. Please enter the container only -- no live plants or soil. Please contact your club leader or 4-H agent for more details.

Give Me Five for 4-H
All 4-H club members are being asked to “Give Me Five for 4-H!” Each month from January until the end of April, club members are asked to donate loose change (nickels or larger please) to the Jefferson Parish 4-H Program. Club treasurers might want to decorate a container to pass around for each month’s collection. If a club does not have a treasurer, another member could be appointed for the job. The club contributing the largest donation will receive a cool prize! All money collected will be used for Jefferson Parish 4-H programming. It will be used to help defray costs and keep all 4-H activities and programs affordable to all interested members.
