Announcing Syngenta Canada as the New Cloverbud Program Sponsor

Introducing Syngenta Canada as the proud, new sponsor of the 4-H Ontario Cloverbud Program and Awards! The Cloverbud Program is a hands-on, activity-based program for youth aged 6–8, covering a variety of topics, including agriculture, food, crafts, lifeskills, the environment and science. Cloverbuds get a taste for the topics in 4-H projects and understanding of 4-H values. The program provides many opportunities to “Learn To Do By Doing”. The Cloverbud Award is presented to first year Cloverbuds upon completion of their project units. In 2018 we project that 250 new Cloverbuds will graciously accept the Syngenta sponsored award. Syngenta has been a dedicated sponsor of 4-H Ontario for many years and we look forward to their continued support of the Cloverbud Program. This program is 4-H Ontario's fastest growing program—currently with 650 youth enrolled. This investment generously offered by Syngenta, will provide the opportunity for 4-H to develop three new project units on the first year of the three-year program cycle. More info on the Cloverbud Program can be found here>>
