It’s not too late to get your free tickets to attend the Michigan State University Extension 4-H Day at the Breslin with the Lady Spartans that takes place Feb. 2 at the Jack Breslin Student Events Center. But you must hurry as tickets are almost gone. The MSU Lady Spartans will take on the Purdue University Boilermakers.
Last year, more than 5,400 fans affiliated with Michigan 4-H Youth Development and MSU Extension attended the eighth annual event, which helped our women’s basketball team earn the fifth highest attendance in their history.
Besides watching the game, 4-H’ers and their guests will be part of the action by taking part in a halftime recital of the 4-H pledge led by Michigan 4-H members at center court. Attendees can participate in 4-H-related activities and view displays celebrating Michigan 4-H. The event allows MSU Extension to showcase college athletics to 4-H members while showing off our programs to fans.
Attend wearing green and white 4-H and MSU Extension apparel to show your support. Admission is free for 4-H members and their families, 4-H volunteers and MSU Extension staff members and their families, but tickets are required and must be reserved by Jan. 27.

Last year, I wrote about the success of the 4-H Day at the Breslin with the Lady Spartans. More than 4,500 Michigan 4-H’ers and their families cheered the Michigan State University women’s basketball team on. Don’t miss out on the fun this season. The seventh annual celebration takes place Sunday, Jan. 15, 2012 when the Spartans face the Ohio State Buckeyes. The game starts at 4 p.m. Gates open at 2:30 to the public. However, Gate D will be open at 2 p.m. for the 4-H group.
Tickets are free for MSU Extension 4‑H youth and their families, 4-H volunteers, and MSU Extension staff and their families. It’s a great bargain, but you must order your free tickets by Jan. 9 in order to attend.

This year’s theme celebrates 4-H’s Revolution of Responsibility, a movement for positive change in which 4-H youth make a difference where they live.
You may enjoy watching the following video portraying a previous 4-H Day at the Breslin:
This year’s 4-H Day With the Lady Spartans event was a huge success. On Dec. 5, approximately 4,600 Michigan 4-H’ers and their families from 49 counties packed the Breslin Center helping the Michigan State University Lady Spartans to draw the third-largest crowd in program history with 13,375. The Spartans did not disappoint. MSU’s women’s basketball team beat 17th-ranked Texas 71-57.
4-H’ers from Crawford County led the crowd in reciting the 4-H pledge. Displays set up in the concourse celebrated 4-H in areas such as mentoring; science, engineering and technology; and environmental education, among others. The event was one of the first in the country to launch the new national 4-H campaign, “Revolution of Responsibility.” Posters, tattoos and buttons promoted this movement for positive change.
