Contests for National 4-H Week October 7-13, 2018!

National 4-H Week is October 7-13, 2018.  Join us as we celebrate 4-H!  We have two really cool contests happening and you don't have to be in 4-H to participate!  Win some cool 4-H swag!
 
4-H GROWS CREATIVITY - grab your colored pencils, markers or crayons and let your creativity flow by participating in the West Pottawattamie Coloring Contest!  Participants may pick up a coloring sheet (three to choose from) at the Extension Office or print them off at home and submit their masterpieces by Friday, October 5th.  Submitted pieces will be displayed during National 4-H Week and winners will be chosen in each age category (under 5, 6-8, 9-11, 11-18 and over 18).  All ages can join in the fun!  Winners will receive some cool 4-H swag!  Make sure to get your entry to the West Pottawattamie Extension Office by Friday, October 5th!

 
Social Media Challenge - break out your 4-H t-shirts, smiles and cameras to submit your entries into our social media challenge!  Take a photo of someone in a 4-H t-shirt and share it on our social media any time during National 4-H Week (October 7-13)! 
 
Don't have Facebook or Instagram?  No worries - photos can also be emailed to jenvin@iastate.edu to be added to our pages! 
 
Participants make sure to tag @WestPott4h and #westpott4h to make sure we see it!  We will also have some cool prizes for our social media contest - get those t-shirts, take a picture and tag us!
