Gov. Mike Parson on Wednesday proclaimed Oct. 4-10 National 4-H Week in Missouri.

This year’s “Opportunity4All” campaigns seek to rally support for 4-H and find solutions to the opportunity gap that affects 55 million children across America, National 4-H Council President and CEO Jennifer Sirangelo said in a news release.

“Our Missouri 4-H members are an example of leadership, professionalism and civic engagement,” University of Missouri Extension’s 4-H Center for Youth Development Director Lupita Fabregas said in the release. “I am proud of everyone who helps us offer all the youth in our state the opportunity to join the largest youth organization in the United States.”

The state organization has a goal to serve 10% of Missouri youth by 2025.

Missouri 4-H will highlight inspirational 4-H’ers throughout the week.
