Show Your 4-H Colours and Show Your 4-H Heart

Ottawa, Ontario – September 27, 2018 – This November 7, 4-H Canada is calling on all supporters to share their 4-H pride by participating in Canada’s annual Show Your 4-H Colours Day.

4-H’ers across the country are encouraged to dig into their closets, pull out their favourite green clothing, wear it for the day, and join more than 32,000 4-H youth members and volunteer leaders – along with tens of thousands of alumni, government leaders and partners – in celebrating one of Canada’s leading positive youth development organizations.

In addition to wearing green, as a proud 4-H’er you can show the world what 4-H means to you by visiting Here you can share your own stories, photos and videos on the impact of 4-H in your life and why you support 4-H in your community, in your country, and around the world.

You can also demonstrate your 4-H pride by using the #ShowYour4HColours hashtag to share your thoughts and experiences.

Show Your 4-H Colours Day on November 7 is just one of many activities taking place, with green continuing as the theme for the entire month of November. Landmarks across Canada – including Toronto’s iconic CN Tower and Vancouver City Hall – will be lighting up in green in support of 4-H.

“Show Your 4-H Colours is the best possible way to share the positive impact 4-H has had on your life,” said 4-H Canada CEO, Shannon Benner. “We encourage everyone to get out into your communities and use social media to tell your story, so that others can learn about 4-H, its values, and our deep commitment to positive youth development.”
