How Can I Get Started?

Step 1: Pick something you've learned in one of your 4-H project areas that you'd like to share with others

Step 2: Create a 3-5 minute video – do a demonstration, interview an expert, or share something you've learned about your project. Ask your county Extension office to borrow a camera! Or create a map that share information about your project area using a free tool like GoogleMaps.
