Burlington--Tractor Supply Company (TSC) stores throughout Vermont are gearing up for the Fall 4-H Paper Clover Campaign, Oct. 3-14. 

Shoppers are encouraged to show their support for University of Vermont (UVM) Extension 4-H by purchasing paper clovers for $1 or more at checkout. The proceeds from the sales at each store will be used to fund 4-H leadership programs in that store's county. 

Donations also may be made at checkout when purchasing items online at These will be distributed based on the buyer's shipping location.  

The semi-annual campaign is a partnership between the National 4-H Council and more than 1,700 TSC and Del's Feed and Farm Supply stores in 49 states. Vermont stores can be found at the following locations: 

--Bennington, 300 Depot St. 

--Montpelier, 352 River St. 

--Morrisville, 88 Center Rd.

Many local 4-H clubs participate in these campaigns, setting up displays and chatting with customers about their 4-H projects, events and volunteer opportunities. Any club that takes part in the fall campaign may enter the Paper Clover Participation Sweepstakes for a chance to win one of 75 $100 TSC gift cards to use for club activities and supplies. Gift cards will be sent to the store manager to be awarded to winning clubs. 

The Spring 4-H Paper Clover Campaign raised $3,033 for 4-H in Vermont. Ninety percent of that total stayed in the state while 10 percent went to National 4-H to support its programming.
