    4-H - Just be Yourself Online

    National 4-H is launching a campaign to hold a microphone up to that voice inside each of us that wants to be heard. We're daring teens to share the actually-human things they wish others knew about them. We believe that by sharing with courage and listening with kindness, we can put the social back into social media. Check it out and contribute at #What I Wish People Knew.
