Get Ready to Show Your 4-H Colours this November

Ottawa, ON – 4-H Canada invites you to Show Your 4-H Colours this November with an exciting celebration inviting 4-H supporters to wear green, celebrate, and give back to one of Canada’s most longstanding and impactful youth organizations. 
From purchasing a limited-edition fundraising t-shirt to wear on November 4 for Show Your 4-H Colours Day to visiting a Canadian landmark lit in green, there are many ways to get involved. Visit for full details. 
Together with our national Show Your 4-H Colours partner, BASF Agricultural Solutions Canada, we encourage you to join the fun and come together to spread awareness and support the great things 4-H’ers are doing in their communities, country, and around the world. 
As 4-H Canada’s Community Engagement & Communications Pillar partner, BASF has stepped up to demonstrate their commitment to mobilizing Canadians to wear green, celebrate, and give back to 4-H.
“We are proud to partner with a company that has such strong 4-H roots and is so committed and engaged in the 4-H movement,” said Shannon Benner, 4-H Canada Chief Executive Officer. “Not only is BASF generously supporting 4-H in Canada at the national and provincial level, they are actively participating in 4-H initiatives to heighten awareness of the lasting impact 4-H has in inspiring youth and supporters alike to make the world a better place.” 
With many BASF staff involved in the 4-H movement as alumni, leaders, or supporters, they will be joining up with the 4-H Canada Youth Advisory Committee to speak out on social media through a Show Your 4-H Colours video series. In early November, check out the videos to hear engaging storytellers share why they are “Proud to Show My 4-H Colours.” 
In addition, through the purchase of over 900 Show Your 4-H Colours limited-edition t-shirts, BASF has provided more than $3,700 to provincial 4-H organizations across the country. BASF staff will proudly wear the tees on Show Your 4-H Colours Day.
“We couldn’t be prouder to support 4-H Canada and celebrate the community-building spirit 4-H fosters among youth and adults—a sentiment that is shared across the agriculture industry,” said Jonathan Sweat, Vice President, BASF Agricultural Solutions Canada. “On November 4, we’ll wear our 4-H Colours t-shirts with pride as we join supporters from across the country in honouring the contributions 4-H’ers make every day of the year.”
