4-H Youth Development

Raise Your Hand Alumni & Friends 2018

OVERVIEW- April 1-May 15, 2018

In 4-H, we believe in the power of America’s youth to succeed in life; however, only one in three youth say they have the skills they need to handle what life throws their way. That’s why 4-H created “Raise Your Hand.” A nationwide call to action for alumni and friends to "Raise Your Hand" to empower our nation's youth with the skills to lead for a lifetime.

The three states with the most hands raised will win $20,000, $10,000 and $5,000! Stay tuned for surprise incentives along the way. State 4-H programs will also receive the contact information of those who vote for their state so that they can be further engaged as friends of 4-H locally.

Please download the RYH Overview for more details.
