Only one in three young people say they have the skills to handle what life throws their way. If we don’t give our kids the opportunity to succeed, we all fail.
That’s where 4-H comes in. 4-H programs meet youth and families where they live, serve community needs and build critical life skills kids need to thrive.
As a result, 4-H created the “Raise Your Hand” initiative - a nationwide call-to-action for 4-H alumni, supporters, and friends to vote for their state to win
funding to help more kids in their communities benefit from 4-H hands-onlearning programs.
The three states with the most hands raised will receive $20,000, $10,000 and $5,000 to bring local 4-H programs to more kids.
But that’s not all, the state with the highest increase in hands raised over last year will receive an “Inspire Kids to Do” photo shoot, coordinated and supported by
National 4-H Council to help tell the story of their local changemakers!
Please join us and Raise Your Hand, because every child deserves a chance to succeed.
