2019 National 4-H Week Activities
Chenango County 4-H, let’s "Inspire Kids to do"!
During National 4-H Week, October , we at the 4-H Office challenge all 4-H’ers and volunteers to promote 4-H and all the good that we do in Chenango County! Take photos, write news stories, wear green, do whatever it takes to let everyone you know that you belong to 4-H!
Some ideas to “get 4-H out there”:

  • Make a wooden sign for display at your town’s entrance or other highly visible area to let people know 4-H is in your community.
  • Decorate windows downtown, highlighting your club.
  • Attend your local town board or county board meeting and thank elected officials for supporting 4-H. (Bring 4-H Clover cookies too!)
  • Create a positive 4-H video for the county or local club Facebook pages promoting 4-H.
  • Hold a community service event during National 4-H Week and invite the media to attend.
  • Contact the 4-H Office to find out who in your community is a local 4-H sponsor and do something special for that individual or business.
  • Ask local businesses to put 4-H Grows Here on their signs during the week.
  • Add a 4-H Week message to every email, text message, twitter posting, or written correspondence during the week.
  • Answer the phone with “Happy 4-H Week!”

This is just a short list of what YOU an do to help promote 4-H in Chenango County! We’re so sure that you can come up with more positive ways to promote 4-H that we’re having a contest to see which club or family is able to do the most!
