This project is really what what you make it! You can choose to do a short or long project, but many 4-H members do citizenship activities throughout their 4-H career by participating in One Day 4-H, National 4-H Week, serving on local community government or with other community organizations. Make it what you want it to be! Talk to your club leader or your county agent about what you can do.
National 4-H Week
National 4-H Week is a week-long celebration of 4-H. You can promote the organization and teach people in your community about 4-H. Clubs can host an open house or some members choose to do presentations about 4-H at their schools or on the local news. Visit your county commissioner to get a resolution recognizing National 4-H Week!
As a strong partner in the 4-H Grows Marketing Campaign, Texas 4-H will be utilizing the resources provided by National 4-H Council through their marketing resource page (http://4-h.org/professionals/marketing-resources/). This page contains brand guides, logos, campaign materials and videos which can be used in various ways through out the week. You will need to register to access the site and to download the resources.

Commissioner Court Interpretation Days
Visit your local government to talk about the importance of 4-H in the community. They can declare special days honoring 4-H in your community!
This event is designed for all 4-H members to learn more about the state legislative process, see legislators in session, and to visit with elected officials.
As you learn more about local government, you may decide you really like it and want to make a difference in the state. At Texas 4-H Congress, members in grades 9th to 12th will visit the Texas State Capitol to write and submit laws. And then act as a member of the House of Representatives, the Senate, the press, or as a lobbyist. From these roles, the 4-H members determine the fate of each bill submitted over the four-day event.
