Dr. Michelle Rodgers, director of UD Cooperative Extension is thrilled to announce my participation in this year's Delaware State Fair Pig Kissing Contest and fundraiser!
Sponsored by the Delaware 4-H Foundation, this contest raises funds to provide scholarships for the fair's Junior Exhibitors!
As you can see, she hasn't been lucky enough to kiss a pig yet—but you can help her kiss the pig later this summer by raising $3,000 for this wonderful cause. Every contribution counts!
Let's work together to support our youth!
About the Foundation
The Delaware 4-H Foundation was established in 1978 to help raise money and in-kind gifts to support the Delaware 4-H Program. The Foundation now provides over $75,000 each year in five areas, such as Awards, Trips, and Scholarships. Private donations from businesses, investment earnings, and non-profit grants are solicited for these areas. The Foundation strives to enhance and expand educational opportunities for Delaware's 4-H youth and build relationships with supporters committed to long-term support.
