Guidelines for Club Web Pages
County Extension Offices, including 4-H units in independent cities, are authorized to use the 4-H name and emblem.
The official 4-H emblem consists of a green four-leaf clover with stem and the letter "H" in white or gold on each leaflet. The 4-H emblem shown most nearly reflects that which is described in the 4-H name and emblem law and is thus recommended for use nationwide.
Graphic images are very easily obtained from the world wide web. However, you may not use any picture or graphic obtained from another site (in whole or in part) without written permission.
The best location for 4-H club web sites is on the county 4-H web page.
All 4-H club Web pages should be housed on Penn State servers. The sites should meet standards of good taste, appropriateness, and present the 4-H club in a positive way.
As with print publications, your website must contain a Penn State affirmative action statement.
If you intend to use a picture or name of a 4-H member, you must obtain written permission from the member's parent or guardian to do so (if the member is 18, parental permission may not be mandatory).
Social media provide powerful tools for communication – to both share information about our programs and engage in conversation with each other and outside parties. These guidelines outline expectations for communicating online on behalf of Pennsylvania 4-H county programs.
