The activation will help in the effort to ensure every kid has an equal opportunity to succeed by bringing 4-H to more kids nationwide via local unrestricted funding.

Tennessee’s Got Talent: Statewide 4-H Youth Talent Search

4-H’ers-do you have a hidden talent? What about a not-so-hidden talent? Has social distancing given you the opportunity to learn a new talent or perfect an old one? Perhaps, you love to sing, play an instrument, or dance, or maybe you like to perform and act. Maybe you like martial arts or cup stacking. “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”

Virtual Escape Rooms

Of course, being able to be in a room and manipulate objects is more fun but for a virtual experience, I would highly recommend it. Escape rooms provide numerous life skills for youth including communication, problem-solving, and team building. Solving puzzles entails listening to others, being open to new ideas, and allowing their contribution in finding a way to escape the room.

Celebrate 4-H Every Day!

For many years, 4-H members around the world have celebrated National 4-H Week the first full week of October. Last week was no exception. Many of us had the chance to reflect on what 4-H means to each of us and highlight the program in different ways. I saw tons of social media posts, videos, texts, etc. where 4-H members shared how the program had impacted them.
