Show 4-H Pride Wherever You Go
Kansans have the opportunity to show support of the Kansas 4-H program in a new way by purchasing a 4-H distinctive license plate.
The clover tag design displaying the clover and 4-H motto was voted on by 4-H members across the state.
The license plate bill was signed by Kansas 4-H alumnus, Governor Sam Brownback in April 2017. Representative Ken Rahjes, another Kansas 4-H alumnus, introduced the bill in the Kansas House of Representatives. Following the signing of the bill, more than 500 individuals across the state signed a form in support of the license plate allowing the production of the plate to begin. They are now available to purchase in your county treasurer’s office.

What does the annual $50 gift support?
Your tax deductible contribution to Kansas 4-H empowers young people with the skills to lead for a lifetime. Part of your contribution remains in the county you registered in to benefit your local 4-H program and the other portion supports state-wide initiatives impacting over 75,000 youth.
