4-H Films Needed for Digitizing

The National 4-H History Preservation leadership team has over 100 4-H films currently listed in our A/V Archive on the 4-H History Preservation Website at http://4-HHistoryPreservation.com/Media_AV.asp but we have only a
very few of these films that have been located and digitized. Originally, when released, many of these films were either sent to State 4-H Offices or to regional extension film libraries. If you know of the locations of old films or videos in your state, we would like to get the name and email or phone number of the best person to contact to see if we can borrow them for digitizing, or have them digitize the films at our expense. Please let us know at: info@4-HHistoryPreservation.com
