Interstate Exchanges give you the opportunity to travel and learn about other states within the United States. You must either host a youth from another state or county or stay in another state or county with a youth. This project will allow you to taste other foods and participate in events and activities with 4-H’ers in other states. You will learn about geography, meet other people, have lots of fun traveling and site seeing. The guide below will lead you through the process, help you think about traveling and safety and give you lots of great ideas to implement as you travel.
You must complete a project journal including the areas outlined in the youth guide and plan a project report using a form of media such as TV, radio or newsletter. Guidelines for eligibility in the exchange program are set by counties.

Farm Animals Stroll the Red Carpet

If you were in the popcorn line and you saw calves, chickens, goats, horses, baby pigs and a dog, maybe you went to the movies in Forsyth. As a teen leadership project, Bremma Mosby and Jessica Harvey of Rosebud County’s Howard Ag club organized a petting zoo so young moviegoers could get into the spirit of Charlotte’s Web and learn about 4-H. They coordinated with other families and business owners to bring animals right to the Roxy theater. Even in chilly weather, kids enjoyed the zoo, especially the horse and baby pigs. After an up-close look at livestock projects, some young moviegoers were eager to join 4-H. After all, that’s some pig!
The Montana 4-H Citizenship curricula provide two areas of focus: national and global citizenship. Specifically, the national citizenship curriculum educates program participants about three specific areas: Montana Government, United States Federal Government, and Montana Tribal Governments. The global citizenship curriculum looks at what it means to be a global citizen and how to participate in a 4-H exchange program.
