Michigan State University Extension hosted the first Michigan 4-H Day at the Capitol on October 4, in partnership with State Reps. Matthew Bierlein (R-Vassar) and Reggie Miller (D-Van Buren Township). The event, held in Heritage Hall at the Capitol, showcased the positive impact of the Michigan 4-H program and brought visibility to its efforts throughout the state.

“Michigan 4-H Day at the Capitol was a great opportunity to educate about and bring awareness to the 4-H program,” said MSU Extension Director Quentin Tyler. “We truly appreciate Reps. Bierlein and Miller for their collaboration in hosting this event.”

Michigan 4-H Day at the Capitol was attended by legislators, stakeholders and members of the public. At the event, attendees visited information booths hosted by Michigan 4-H youth and staff. A brief program featured event hosts Reps. Bierlein and Miller delivering comments to the audience. Tyler, MSU Interim President Teresa Woodruff, Genesee County Clerk and Register of Deeds Domonique Clemons, who is a Michigan 4-H alum, and Lenawee County 4-H’er Lia Kurowicki also addressed the audience.

“Michigan 4-H is helping young people develop and thrive in every county in Michigan, but we would like to reach even more young people with this life-changing program,” continued Tyler. “We hope this event brings us closer to that goal by increasing the visibility of our 4-H program and all that we offer to youth in our great state.”

The program was livestreamed on the Michigan 4-H Facebook page and can be viewed at www.facebook.com/Michigan4H. Organizers are already planning the 2024 event.
