BROOKINGS, S.D. - South Dakota 4-H now exists on all the primary social media platforms: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat.
"It's no secret that for an organization to be successful from a digital perspective engaging with consumers through social media is no longer an option, but a necessity," said Hilary Risner, SDSU Extension Regional 4-H Youth Program Advisor. "We look forward to getting social with you and don't worry we still enjoy face-to-face communication just as much as our online interactions."
Through social media, Risner explained that 4-H hopes to be even more accessible to all audiences, including not only youth members, but also their parents and potentially grandparents whom have a social media presence.
