4-H Caucus Co-Chairs Praise Senate Passage of Resolution Supporting Designation of National 4-H Week

Wed, 20 Oct 2021 11:11:01 CDT

4-H Caucus Co-Chairs Praise Senate Passage of Resolution Supporting Designation of National 4-H Week The co-chairs of the Senate 4-H Caucus, U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow and John Boozman, applauded Senate adoption of their resolution supporting the designation of “National 4-H Week.”

The resolution, introduced by Stabenow and Boozman, supports the designation of October 3 through Oct. 9, 2021 as “National 4-H Week;” recognizes the important role of 4-H in youth development and education; and encourages all citizens to recognize 4-H for the significant impact the organization and members have made and continue to make by empowering young people with the skills needed to lead for a lifetime.

“We need a strong and engaged next generation of leaders, both on and off the farm. 4-H provides our young people with opportunities to lead hands-on health, science, agriculture, and civic engagement projects,” Chairwoman Stabenow said. “As a former 4-H’er myself, I know 4-H equips young people with the skills they need to thrive in any career. I am glad my colleagues came together on a bipartisan basis to officially recognize National 4-H Week.”

“Next to church, 4-H probably had the biggest influence on my family. My daughters were very active 4-H members and state record book winners. The organization had a tremendously positive influence on their lives. I am proud of the difference 4-H makes in Arkansas and across the country. It truly does help shape the next generation of leaders, which is why it is important for us to encourage young people to participate in 4-H. They will gain so much from the experience,” Ranking Member Boozman said.   

4-H, the youth development program of the Cooperative Extension System of land-grant universities, is the largest youth development organization in the nation, supporting nearly six million young people across the country. The organization provides experiences for young people to learn through hands-on projects in the important areas of health, science, agriculture and civic engagement.

Stabenow and Boozman were joined in introducing the resolution by the following 44 senators: Sens. Tina Smith (D-MN), Roger Marshall (R-KS), Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Raphael Warnock (D-GA), Kevin Cramer (R-ND), Angus King (I-ME), John Hoeven (R-ND), Susan Collins (R-ME), Cory Booker (D-NJ), Thom Tillis (R-NC), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Mike Braun (R-IN), Deb Fischer (R-NE), Jim Risch (R-ID), Roger Wicker (R-MS), Roy Blunt (R-MO), Chris Coons (D-DE), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Tim Kaine (D-VA), Mike Rounds (R-SD), Jerry Moran (R-KS), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Tom Carper (D-DE), Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Gary Peters (D-MI), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Bill Hagerty (R-TN), Joe Manchin (D-WV), Jim Inhofe (R-OK), James Lankford (R-OK), Todd Young (R-IN), Tom Cotton (R-AR), John Barrasso (R-WY), Michael Bennet (D-CO), Ben Ray Lujan (D-NM), Richard Burr (R-NC), Steve Daines (R-MT), Martin Heinrich (D-NM), Maggie Hassan (D-NH), John Cornyn (R-TX), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and Tim Scott (R-SC).
