USDA Secretary, Tom Vilsack issued a full proclamation announcing this year’s event. The 4-H flag was raised at the USDA Headquarters in Washington, D.C., earlier this week and will fly all week long.

Help us amplify #4HWeek by sharing 4-H stories on social media and by distributing the National 4-H Week Proclamation.

Did you know that what is now known as National 4-H Week began as an outgrowth of World War II? Following Pearl Harbor, it was decided to postpone holding the National 4-H Camp in Washington, D.C.

Soon after, 4-H leaders in Ohio announced their plans for a State 4-H Mobilization Week, focusing on what 4-H members could do for national defense. The idea was embraced by 4-H leaders nationwide and evolved into National 4-H Mobilization Week, which was observed in 1942, 1943, and 1944. Beginning in 1945, and every year since, it has been known as National 4-H Week.
Learn more about 4-H History from the USDA National Agricultural Library.

Happy celebrating National 4-H Week 2023!
