National 4-H Week

October 2, 2022 - October 8, 2022

4-H Week October 2-8, 2022. More opportunity, more smiles.

For over 100 years, 4‑H has inspired families, shaped careers, and impacted communities. From October 2-8, we will celebrate the impact of 4‑H during National 4‑H Week.

In celebration of National 4-H Week, Michigan 4-H is offering a photo/video contest! We are asking 4-H volunteers, youth and alumni to share a photo or video highlighting “What I love about 4-H."  Learn more at:


Additional ideas to celebrate National 4-H Week

Wear Your 4‑H Gear — Nothing says 4‑H pride like a 4‑H tee! Dress yourself (or the entire family – pets included!) in 4‑H green and clover gear.

Shout-Out a 4‑H’er — Recognize the hard work and dedication of 4‑H’ers by shouting out one youth or an entire club on social media, in a local newspaper or other media.

Storefront Displays/Information Booths — In some communities, you can ask local businesses to display 4‑H posters, flyers, showcase the work of 4-H'ers, or host a table to share information about your local 4‑H program. Stores may also be willing to dedicate their entire storefront to 4‑H signs, memorabilia, and décor for the week.

Become a 4‑H Volunteer —If you are a 4‑H alum, you might be looking for ways to reconnect with 4‑H. Consider giving your time to a local 4‑H club by becoming a volunteer.

Share Your 4‑H Story — Take to social media to share a 4‑H memory, express how 4‑H shaped who you are today, describe what 4‑H means to you, post an old 4‑H photo, or shout-out your 4‑H club. 

Have a 4‑H Reunion — 4‑H alumni often credit 4‑H for the connections they’ve made, remembering the friends they made and those who they may still keep in touch with today. Gather your old 4‑H friends and spend some time together reminiscing on your 4‑H experience or recreate a 4‑H project together!

Send a 4‑H ‘Thank You’ — We all have a reason to thank our local 4‑H staff, leaders and supporters. To show your appreciation, send a handwritten ‘thank you’ note to someone who has supported youth and made a difference.

Give Back — Local programs are always looking for resources to continue growing 4-H for the future. Help programs thrive by making a donation that can help support your county 4-H program.
