National 4-H Week

National 4-H Week is a great time to promote 4-H!  The Appanoose County 4-H Program will be celebrating along with the rest of the Nation!  We will have several things going on during the week! 
 
1. We will be having a coloring contest again this year!  This is for anyone to participate in!  I will distribute the pictures to elementary schools, libraries, etc. or they can be picked up at the Extension Office.  All submissions must be made during National 4-H Week!  Winners will receive prizes!
2.  This year we will also be having a 4-H Scavenger Hunt!  Anyone who completes this will be entered to win a $20.00 Wal-Mart Gift Card!                              
Scavenger Hunt Items:
· A four-leaf clover
· Autograph of a 4-H Volunteer
· Autograph of a “Friend of 4-H” (You can see the friends of 4-H list at the Extension Office!)
· A photo of a current 4-H member wearing a 4-H t-shirt!
3.  We will also be having a 4-H Fun Day to end National 4-H Week on Saturday, October 10, 2015, from 10:00am-12:00pm.  We will have a display about our county 4-H Program, New Member Packets, exhibit ideas, lots of hands on activities, giveaways, snacks and more!  There will also be laptops available for people to enroll in 4-H Online or re-enroll for the new 4-H year.  CloverKids will be able to sign up at this time.   We will even have some fun science experiments going on and Water Rocks! from Iowa State University will be here with their Conservation Station!  This will be a come and go event and you won’t want to miss out!
In addition to these events above, we are going to encourage our current 4-H members to celebrate by showing the 4-H Pride during the week!  On Monday, October 5th, wear your Appanoose County 4-H T-Shirt to school and on Wednesday, October 7th, wear your Club T-Shirt! 
Let’s all work together to share 4-H with Appanoose County!
