Young people in Missouri 4-H participate in programs that help them develop the skills they need to succeed in their lives and careers. This fall, local Tractor Supply Co. stores continue their long-standing partnership with 4-H for the 2019 Fall Paper Clover campaign to let more youths experience 4-H’s youth-led, hands-on programming.
From Oct. 9 through Oct. 20, Tractor Supply Co. customers in Missouri can participate in the campaign by purchasing paper clovers for $1 or more at checkout. The funds raised will be awarded as scholarships to individual Missouri 4-H’ers wishing to attend 4-H camps and leadership conferences across the country. The total amount raised determines how many scholarships will be distributed following the campaign.
Since their partnership began in 2010, Tractor Supply Co. and the National 4-H Council have generated more than $14.5 million in essential funding. The fundraising effort directly supports numerous 4-H programs in Missouri.
4-H, the nation’s largest youth development organization, grows confident young people who are empowered for life today and prepared for careers tomorrow. 4-H programs empower nearly 6 million young people across the U.S. through experiences that develop critical life skills. 4-H is the youth development program of our nation’s Cooperative Extension System and USDA, serving every county and parish in the U.S. through a network of 110 public universities and more than 3,000 local extension offices. Globally, 4-H collaborates with independent programs to empower 1 million youths in 50 countries. The research-backed 4-H experience grows young people who are four times more likely to contribute to their communities and two times more likely to make healthier choices, be civically active and participate in STEM programs.
