Vote in the Raise Your Hand for 4-H contest

Only one in three young people say they have the skills to handle what life throws their way. If we don’t give kids the opportunity to succeed, we all fail. That’s where 4-H comes in. Ohio 4-H Youth Development programs meet youth and families where they live, serve community needs and build critical life skills young people need to thrive.

Again this year, the “Raise Your Hand” initiative is an opportunity to secure funding for 4-H hands-on learning programs.

4-H alumni, supporters and friends are asked to vote for Ohio to win funding to help more kids. Vote now and Ohio’s 4‑H program could win $5,000, $10,000 or $20,000 to help more young people do, learn and grow.

Ty Higgins visits with Ohio Farm Bureau’s First Vice President Bill Patterson about the Raise Your Hand initiative and how easy it is to take part.

Raise your hand for 4-H. Voting ends May 15, 2019.
