On January 15, 2012, the stands at the MSU Breslin Center will be even greener than usual as up to 5,500 extra fans gather to celebrate the Michigan State University Extension 4-H Youth Development program. They'll be there not only to cheer themselves, but also to help the MSU Women's Basketball team claim victory over Ohio State.
Over the past several years, MSU's Breslin Center has partnered with the Extension program by offering 4-H members and their families, 4-H volunteers, and MSU Extension staff members and their families free tickets to one MSU Women's Basketball game. The resulting "green wave" has been enough to set attendance records for the team more than once.
The theme of this year's event is the Revolution of Responsibility, referring to 4-H's national campaign to highlight the way 4-H youth members are creating a "living, breathing cultural revolution" to bring about change in their communities. From feeding the hungry to protecting the environment, 4-H'ers are identifying local needs and responding to them with positive solutions. Displays around the Breslin Center concourse will tell the story of the Revolution of Responsibility right here in Michigan.
This Sunday afternoon game starts at 4 p.m. with the Gate "D" doors open to MSUE/4-H ticket holders at 2 p.m. Participants are asked to show their MSU Extension/4-H pride by wearing their green and white 4-H or MSU Extension apparel. Attendees will join in saying the 4-H pledge and have the opportunity to have photos taken with Sparty. The game will be televised by ESPN2.
Those interested in getting tickets should contact their local MSU Extension office.
