Event Details

4-H created the “Raise Your Hand” initiative - a nationwide call-to-action for 4-H alumni, supporters, and friends to vote for their state to win funding to help more kids in their communities benefit from 4-H hands-on learning programs.


  • The three states with the highest percentage of their population raising their hands will receive $20,000, $10,000 and $5,000 to bring local 4-H programs to more kids.

  • The state with the highest increase in hands raised over last year will receive an “Inspire Kids to Do” photo shoot, coordinated and supported by National 4-H Council to help tell the story of their local changemakers!

  • Drawing at the end of the campaign for 15 states to win a $1,000 JOANN gift card. The more people raising their hands for your state, the more chances for your state to win! 


  1. Grow our 4-H community, supporting access for all youth to 4-H skill-building, hands-on learning programs.
  2. Engage 4-H alumni, friends, and supporters to help spread the word about the benefits of 4-H skill-building programs for kids and the community.
  3. Grow awareness of the life-changing impact of 4-H youth development programs.
