Theme:  The theme for the 2018 poster art contest is The Fifth “H”.  As you try to think of an idea for your poster think what does that mean to you?  Think about what 4-H is all about and what it means to you and your family.  Now if we were to add a fifth word that starts with “H”, to go along with Head, Heart, Health, and Hands, what would that word be?

 

Members can ask parents or other adults for ideas, but then they have to do the work.
