Show Your 4-H Colours
Show Your 4-H Colours is the annual celebration of 4-H across Canada!
Every November, 4-H members, leaders, alumni, and supporters alike don their 4-H green and come together to spread awareness of 4-H and support the positive impacts the 4-H program is making in Canada and abroad. This celebration highlights the incredible things 4-H youth are doing in their communities and how the 4-H program is creating responsible, caring, and contributing young leaders.
Established in 2007, this campaign celebrates everything that is 4-H while giving back to 4-H. As a movement, we believe there are countless ways to celebrate 4-H and to give back to the program, and we are encouraging members of the 4-H community and beyond to explore how to do that. By wearing green, celebrating, and giving back, you are showing your 4-H colours. Together, we are making a difference in Canadian communities by inspiring youth to “Learn To Do By Doing”.
