As we work toward growing our Montana 4-H program alumni are one of our most valuable resources. Who knows better than a Montana 4-H alum what 4-H can offer today's youth. The Raise Your Hand campaign is designed to reach all of those 4-H alumni across the nation and reconnect them with the program that likely gave them many of the skills they use today.

It is also a contest! Raising your hand is a vote towards a $20,000, $10,000 or $5,000 award for the states with the most alumni hands raised. Use these resources to get the word out and get Montana 4-H alumni hands raised.
