If you’re a 4-H’er, you’re more than aware of Show Your 4-H Colours Day, which is annually held on November 4.
Typically, this means the gathering of thousands of youth, volunteers, alumni, and supporters from coast to coast to celebrate 4-H by giving back to their communities, all while wearing their favourite shade of green. COVID-19, of course, has made that task a little more difficult, to say the least. However, current and former students to the program are still showing their support across the country as they wear their 4-H colours.
Many have taken to social media to show off their green, and different companies have showed their support for 4-H as well. Cities across Canada are hosting distanced events, or showing their support through lights. Check out what some of the 4-H’ers — both past and present — are sharing:
One of the programs that supports 4-H — UFA Funds 4-H Clubs — is letting clubs know that there is $80,000 in funding available in 2021 for 4-H Alberta Clubs and Districts to apply for support of their local programs, projects, and initiatives. Applications open November 4, 2020, and close January 15, 2021. More information can be found here.
