2017 Future 4-H’er Contest

Annual Contest For Fall Baby

Putnam County’s 4-H believes in starting its members at a young age.

We do mean a young age.

If you, or someone you know, are expecting a baby sometime around the first full week of October, your “new arrival” could be honored as this year’s Putnam County future 4- H’er!

The Putnam County Leaders’ Association, in celebration of National 4-H Week, October 2nd-8th, 2017, will be showering the first Putnam County Baby born on or after October 2nd, 2017 with gifts.

This will mark the 26th year of recognizing a “Future 4-H’er”.

To be eligible, the “October baby” must be pre-registered with the Putnam County 4-H Office by calling 304-586-0217 or emailing emma.browning@mail.wvu.edu.    Please put Future 4-H’er in the subject. The baby and family must reside in Putnam County, and the parents must be willing to allow photos to be taken for publicity when the baby is “showered” with gifts from 4-H’ers.

The “Future 4-H’er” will receive a layette full of gifts donated by members of the local Putnam County 4-H Clubs.

Be sure to contact the 4-H Office (304-586-0217 or emma.browning@mail.wvu.edu) to register your baby (who is due to arrive around the 2nd-8th of October) to be the Putnam County Future 4-H’er.
