Update: Ohio 4-H announced its award of $20,000 for participation in Raise Your Hand, a national 4-H initiative asking the millions of 4‑H alumni across the nation, including 4-H alums in Ohio, to ‘Raise Your Hand’ and pay it forward in support of providing the hands-on learning that empowers kids across America.
The 4-H program believes in the power of America’s youth to succeed in life; however, only one in three kids say they have the skills they need to handle what life throws their way. That’s why 4-H created Raise Your Hand, a nationwide call to action for alumni to “raise their hands” to empower the nation’s youth with the skills to lead for a lifetime.
Ohio Farm Bureau is supporting 4-H in this effort. If you’re a 4-H alum or know someone who is, consider participating in the campaign:
Raise Your Hand: Go to the Raise Your Hand page to show your pride as a 4-H alumni.
Compete for Ohio: Raising your hand is a vote toward a $20,000, $10,000 or $5,000 award for the states with the most alumni hands raised. Help put Ohio on top.
Pay It Forward: Tweet, post and share your #4HGrown experience or support and tag fellow alumni asking them to raise their hands for Ohio.
