BROOKINGS — Visit your local Tractor Supply this spring and purchase a paper clover to help fund scholarships for South Dakota 4-H youth to attend 4-H camps and leadership events.

“Every year, 4-Her’s in South Dakota participate in a number of 4-H programs to help improve their knowledge and leadership skills,” said Peter Nielson, SDSU Extension coordinator of youth development. “Tractor Supply stores are continuing their long-standing partnership with 4-H through the 2018 Spring Paper Clover Campaign to make it possible for more youth in the community to experience 4-H’s youth-led, hands-on programming.”

Spend $1 April 11-22 and support South Dakota 4-H

April 11-22, 2018 South Dakota Tractor Supply customers can participate in the 2018 Spring Paper Clover Campaign by purchasing paper clovers for $1 or more at checkout.

The funds raised will be awarded as scholarships to individual South Dakota 4-H members wishing to attend 4-H camping experiences.

“The South Dakota 4-H Youth Development program greatly appreciates the support of Tractor Supply and the generous donations from their customers. The Paper Clover Campaign provides opportunities for youth from across the state to participate in youth camping and leadership programs,” said Donna Bittiker, SDSU Extension state 4-H Program director.

Since it began in 2010, the partnership between Tractor Supply and 4-H has generated more than $11,000,000 in essential funding nationwide.

The spring and fall Paper Clover fundraiser raised more than $981,000 during the Fall 2017 campaign. The fundraising effort directly supports numerous 4-H camping programs in South Dakota.
