The 24th annual 4-H Celebration of Youth: 4-H Leading the Way was a special and unique evening, bringing in over $137,000 for Ohio 4-H Youth Development programs. More than 220 4-H supporters joined us for this year’s celebration, the first at Leeds Farm in Ostrander. This year’s event was an evening of fun-filled fall activities on the farm.
The National 4-H Conference was in the spotlight when this year’s event concluded with auctioneer Johnny Regula seeking $1,000 sponsorships to send Ohio 4-H teens to the conference in Washington, D.C. Over $10,000 in pledges were received to support Ohio’s delegation to attend next year’s conference.
Ohio 4-H leads the way in positive youth development. Proceeds from the Celebration of Youth will support innovative programs at the county and state. A special thanks to this year’s sponsors for their support and dedication. Visit our Celebration of Youth page for a list of sponsors and join us next year!
