National 4-H Week: Inspire Kids to Do! Oct. 7-13, 2018

By Amy Sollock

Help celebrate this year’s National 4-H Week, Oct 7-13, by joining the movement to “INSPIRE KIDS TO DO!” Since 1968, National 4-H Week has been held the first full week of October. National 4-H Week is a chance to raise awareness of 4-H, enroll more young people, and recruit more volunteers. Now is the time for clubs and 4-H councils to discuss and make plans for local efforts to promote and celebrate National 4-H week as well as National Youth Science Day and 48 Hours of 4-H (Oct. 13 and 14).

Tuesday, Oct. 9 will be Spirit Day. A lot of parents already encourage 4-Hers to wear a clover to school and that’s what this day will be – an opportunity for members, parents, and volunteers to show their clover pride by wearing a 4-H T-shirt to school/work.

30 Days of Doing will celebrate kids who are doing great things all across the country, for the entire month of September. It is a celebration of kids, both 4-H and not 4-H, who “do” things a with purpose across the nation through fun tools, tips, resources and stories for moms and kids.

There also will be a photo contest and major social media engagement. The photo contest is part of 30 Days of Giving – 5-17 year olds can win a $10,000 scholarship and a $10,000 honorarium for their state.
