Potential Buyers

Consider supporting Michigan 4-H members through 4-H virtual auction opportunities this summer.

Many youth across the state have worked throughout the past year on their 4-H projects and though not the same as the county fair, the 4-H Virtual Learning Showcase and Auctions provides them with a space to demonstrate their knowledge and skills, as well as to market and sell their projects.

Ways you can help:

PARTICIPATE in a 4-H virtual auction.
Purchase locally-sourced meat, crafts or other auction items from 4-H youth to support their 4-H experience and continued learning and development. Learn more on the Virtual Auction FAQPotential Buyer FAQ and other resources below.

Look for 2021 dates and information soon!

DONATE to a local food bank.
Instead of purchasing the meat for your consumption, consider donating the protein to a local food bank to support people in need in your community. Participation in the 4-H virtual auction food bank donation program varies by community. Learn more on the Virtual Auction FAQPotential Buyer FAQ and other resources below.
