National 4-H Week: “Keeping It Green!”
October 5-11, 2008
4-H’ers from across the nation will be
“Keeping It Green” as they celebrate
2008 National 4-H Week by raising
awareness about environmental issues
and initiating environmental projects
that make a positive difference in their
communities.
Throughout National 4-H Week and the
year, 4-H’ers solve problems in their
communities, raise awareness about environmental issues, and make a difference for their futures in the spirit of 4H’s vision to create a world in which
youth and adults learn, grow, and work
together as catalysts for positive
change.
Ideas to Promote 4-H
•
Cute Candies: “We’re Bursting w/
Fun!” Use a Starburst.
•
Put up posters: “Keep it Green &
Clean.”
•
Plant a 4-H Flower Box at your
school.
•
Host a school clean up day and
provide snacks.

Pumpkins are just plain good for you.
They are low in fat, low in calories,
loaded with vitamins and very tasty too!
Here are some stats on what’s in one cup
