Positive light amidst Covid-19 

4-H’ers across the country are doing amazing things to make the world a better place during this time of COVID-19. Over the next few weeks, we want to bring these stories to the forefront and inspire kids everywhere to make a difference, too. Young people can make a huge impact during times like these, and we want to tell those incredible stories.

As you come across the stories of young people who are doing something positive to help their communities, make a difference, or even just make people smile, would you help us by sharing their stories via this quick form? It can be completed by an Extension Service professional, parent or 4-H’er.
