In 2017, 4-H will be a part of Canada’s big year as a Canada 150 Signature Project. Together, we will engage youth and connect communities, by bringing Canadians together from coast to coast, to participate in unifying events, share experiences and learn about why there is no greater time than now for 4-H in Canada.
Get in on the celebration - Apply Now!
4-H’ers, you can host a Canada 150 celebration in your community by applying for the 4-H Connecting Canadians Fund, offered to registered 4-H clubs, districts, regions and provinces across Canada.
Over $200,000 is available for funding of up to 150 4-H youth-led community celebrations, from coast to coast, celebrating Canada’s rich agricultural history and connecting urban and rural communities. Applicants can apply to receive $500 to $2500 dollars to host a community celebration or to support their group in delivering an existing or new event that engages youth, celebrates Canada’s birthday and increases awareness of 4-H in Canada.
Selections will be made based on set criteria and proposal eligibility, as outlined in fund guidelines.
