“Voices of 4-H History Introduced at NAE4-HA

In October, 2012, “Voices of 4-H History” was introduced to those attending the 2012 meeting of the National Association of Extension 4-H Agents in Orlando, Florida. Over 1,000 4-H agents, volunteers and program leaders had the opportunity to see a 90-second video of historical images projected in the National 4-H Council exhibit area. The 90-second video of historical 4-H images was part of a continuous loop that played numerous times during the two days the exhibit hall was open.

Representatives of the National 4-H History Preservation Leadership Team were available to visit with state and county staff about the Voices project. More than 500 rack cards describing the project were distributed during the conference. Delegates from more than 30 states provided their contact information expressing high interest in the 4-H history project. Many of these contacts had done some history data collections that they are excited about sharing with the national project. The “Voices of 4-H History” team will follow up with those who requested follow up.

The new website for “Voices of 4-H History” was introduced and the web address shared with many at the Orlando meeting. This new web page is designed to serve as a tool kit for local teams wanting to start a “Voices of 4-H History” project in their local community; http://4-HHistoryPreservation.com/Voices/
