$$ – Funding Request – $$

Do you have an idea for your 4-H community? Do you need some financial help attending a 4-H event or program? The 4-H Leaders Association may be able to help you! There are limited funds set aside each year to help our La Crosse County youth participate in 4-H. Our leaders want to hear your ideas and needs! To request funding, please fill out the Financial Request form. Then, you may turn it in to the UW-Extension office or present your request to the Leaders Board at their monthly meeting open forum. (Visit the Adult Leadership page or the 4-H Calendar to see upcoming meeting dates/times).

These books serve as a kind of scrapbook or record of all you have accomplished in your projects over the year. Because Record Books are judged for awards, there are specific forms that must be included in your book. For all the details, visit the Record Books page!
