    Message from Dorothy: Be fearlessly committed to growing more true leaders

    In her last article as Minnesota 4-H state leader, Dorothy Freeman encourages all youth, volunteers and families to be fearless in growing true leaders.

    Nominate a 4-H volunteer for Salute to Excellence

    Volunteers give much to the Minnesota 4-H program! Consider nominating an outstanding volunteer for a 2019 4-H Salute to Excellence Award. All nomination materials are due by Sept. 15, 2018.

    Plan to attend annual volunteer training this fall

    Powerful things happen for youth when they’re in a positive relationship with caring adults. The 2018 annual volunteer training, “4-H Grows Relationships,” will ready youth and adult volunteers to connect to young people in meaningful ways. Watch for dates and locations across the state this fall and plan to bring a team of youth and adult volunteers.

    Card games, board games, and hands-on learning...Oh my!

    Make sure your club explores these new zoonotic disease and agritourism resources being sent to every county across the state. Then enter your team into a video contest for a chance at winning a Glo-Germ lesson kit for your group - The winning team will have the chance to work with a professional videographer to re-produce their video as a commercial for national distribution!

    Remember livestock demonstration opportunities

    Again in 2018 the Minnesota Livestock Breeders Association will be providing $30 cash awards to all 4-H members who complete a livestock demonstration during 4-H livestock weekend at the Minnesota State Fair. Start planning your livestock demonstration today!

    These scholarships are available for college-bound 4-H youth

    Two scholarships are being offered for Minnesota 4-H youth pursuing post-secondary studies at accredited colleges and universities. Over $58,000 is awarded annually through a competitive application process.

    Demonstrations and Engineering Design Challenge

    Demonstrations and Engineering Design Challenge will be held before the fair this year on Thursday, July 26th at 5:30 PM on the fair grounds.

    Clothing and Textiles Judging

    Do you like to shop? Are you good with a needle and thread? Bring your projects to the clothing and textiles judging.

    Cloverbud Days

    Cloverbud days are going to be a great way to get our K-2nd graders pumped up for 4-H events and activities.

    Message from Dorothy: 4-H and agriculture: Preparing youth for a lifetime of impact

    Associate dean and state 4-H director Dorothy Freeman encourages youth and the adults who support them to explore an agrisciece project this year. It's a great way to build skills, connect with mentors and find real solutions to challenges in your community!
