Paper clover campaign begins next week

Staff Report

NEWBERRY — The 2016 Fall Paper Clover Campaign, hosted by Tractor Supply Co. in partnership with the National 4-H Council, will be held from Oct. 5 to Oct. 16.

Tractor Supply shoppers can buy a paper clover for $1 or more at checkout. Money raised from the sales will be awarded as scholarships to 4-H members wanting to attend 4-H camps and leadership conferences across the country.

With the completion of the 2016 fall campaign, Tractor Supply and the National 4-H Council hope to reach the milestone of $10 million raised for 4-H members since the partnership began seven years ago. More than $935,351 was raised during the 2016 spring campaign.

Tractor Supply will work with 4-H groups on the state level to donate the funds as scholarships to local 4-H members to attend camps and leadership conferences. 4-H members can contact their county agents for information on how to apply. The number of scholarships distributed to students will be determined based on the total amount raised throughout the campaign.
