Send a 4-H Shoutout!

4-H SHOUTOUTS! are a great way to cheer someone on for the great work they've done and congratulate someone for their accomplishments. You can purchase a 4-H SHOUTOUT! at the 4-H Pop Stand this week during the fair. Your $5.00 donation to the Franklin County 4-H Camp Scholarship program will get you a 4-H SHOUTOUT! placard that you can fill out any way you want and have displayed in the Ganyard Building. So SHOUTOUT! your love for your 4-H member and give back to a great cause.

4-H SHOUTOUTS! are great for:
  • Congratulating graduating 4-H members on their 4-H career.
  • Thanking a 4-H club advisor for their help.
  • Saying thanks to another member who helped you out.

  • You may not realize the number of volunteers and hours of time and energy that go into making the fair a great experience for all.
  • Parents can help demonstrate GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP to their children and others around them.
  • Please help our 4-H members learn that life can throw curve balls but it's how we deal with the situation that truly shows a person's character.
