IDEAS:

  • What have you done or are looking forward to this year with 4-H Alberta?
  • Share stories of adventure, like travelling abroad, with 4-H friends.
  • How did you raise your animal the 4-H way?
  • Why is your 4-H club the best in Alberta?
  • Where did your club volunteer, or raise funds this year?
  • What is life like on a 21st Century farm, or maybe you’re a city folk with 4-H style?
  • More importantly, HOW did you learn to do by doing?
  • Or simply tell a great story!

You spent a lot of time thinking, writing, revising, editing, writing some more and then editing it a few more times to make it perfect, so we will do our best to make sure your article and photo make the final cut. However, some articles may be reduced in size or withheld for another publication.

If you are unsure about any of the above tips, please do not hesitate to contact us.
