2024 UConn 4-H Citizenship Day

This event is open to all youth 12-18 years old. Adults are welcome to attend to assist throughout the day with needed volunteer tasks. Register now by completing and returning the registration form. Registration is $15 until 3/20/24. After that date the fee goes up to $20. Registration fee includes lunch, UConn 4-H polo shirt and program materials.

Each day, 4-H youth use skills learned through their project work. We will explore those tools used by 4-H members and how we can put them to work in everyday school settings. Tools like financial literacy, public speaking, healthy eating and civic engagement. We will look at 4-H workforce readiness skills and how we can apply those skills toward academic success.
Please call 860-885-2824 at least two weeks prior to the event if special accommodations are needed.

Poster Contest
Within our projects, 4-H focuses on Head, Heart, Hands and Health. How do you use what you learned in 4-H in other areas of your life like school? Create a poster to share with others. Prizes for the best displays.
