Evaluator Sign Up: Click Here

Thank you so much to the volunteers who helped evaluated at Foods Fiesta last weekend. It led to one of the quickest and most efficient judging processes in a long time. We encourage as many folks to register as evaluators as possible. Don't forget that senior 4-H members who have previously received a Gold at RCFD can also be evaluators and this would fulfill their presentation requirement.

Submit a Craft For
Spring 2022 Campaign
JOANN would like to engage a few current 4-H’ers and/or alumni to create a project with instructions to share out with their audience of makers. Selected projects may be shared out on JOANN social media channels and promotional materials in the spring of 2022.
Creativity is key and JOANN is open to a variety to projects, but please keep in mind that the most successful projects will be simple in their construction so customers can easily re-create them.
Once a project concept is approved by the JOANN team, they will provide supplies and/or a gift card to cover any project costs. Please click here to see the Creative Briefs on how to write out the project instructions and get the link to submit your entry on the California 4-H webpage.

. Best Paper Clover ever!

We broke the record!! The preliminary NATIONAL total for the Fall 2021 TSC Paper Clover is $1,263,635. This number does not include the Credit Card match, we won’t have that figure until later. It will also likely shift up as they finalize funds.
Thank you for your support of 4-H Camp and Leadership experiences!
