4-H youths from across the nation will be “Keeping It Green” as they celebrate 2008 National 4-H Week this 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 4-H’s vision to create a world in which youth and adults learn, grow, and work together as catalysts for positive change.

In Refugio County, more than 150 4-H members and 50 volunteers are actively involved in 4‑H.

4-H’ers in Refugio County will be celebrating National 4-H Week by: delivering baked goods and gifts to school faculty and local supporters, tying green ribbons around town, and promoting 4-H at schools with 4-H locker signs.

Youths may join the 4-H community today. To learn how to become a 4-H member or volunteer leader in the county, contact the county extension office at 526-2825, or by e-mail at or visit for more information.

4-H is a community of six million young people across America learning leadership, citizenship and life skills. National 4-H Headquarters, which operates out of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), is the federal partner of 4-H programs implemented by the Cooperative Extension System of the nation’s 106 land-grant colleges and universities and in local communities through 3,150 county Cooperative Extension offices.
