Wisconsin 4-H Movement Challenge Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Wisconsin 4-H Movement Challenge?

The “Wisconsin 4-H Movement Challenge” is to encourage 4-H’ers from across the state to share how they LIVE out the 4-H Movement! In many different ways, such as through community service projects, exploring new cultures and ideas, or self-expression, 4-H’ers have been living the 4-H Movement for years and we would like to showcase all the incredible achievements of our 4-H’ers. 4-H’ers are invited to share how they live out one of the values of the Wisconsin 4-H Movement through the submission of video, drawing, creative writing, or still photography between October 1- October 31, 2020.

All young people who make a submission will receive a special edition Wisconsin 4-H Movement bracelet! If you have a young person from your county who makes a submission you will also receive a special edition bracelet!

Submissions will be shared on Wisconsin 4-H social media pages throughout the month of October, so be on the lookout for submissions from young people from your county!

After the submission deadline has closed, county educators will receive a list of challenge participants from their county and will be mailed bracelets for these young people. We kindly ask educators to distribute bracelets to the challenge participants in your county.
