4-H Now Container App Released

Grandstand Apps has launched the newest addition to our growing container app family – 4-H Now. The newest container app is a collection of 4-H focused apps built by state, county and local 4-H groups. 4-H Now is the home for hundreds of county 4-H groups who are looking to build an inexpensive app for their fair and other events throughout the year.

The 4-H Now collection will feature only apps built for 4-H, thereby guaranteeing parents and students the safety and security that a 4-H exclusive app can offer. Should you elect to produce a stand-alone app, the app can also be listed in the 4-H Now Container, or one of the other containers Grandstand offers.  These could be year-round apps for state or county 4-H programs, or a specific project niche app, or even an app just for a 4-H County or State Fair.

4-H groups have a variety of activities and events going on every month. Our full- or self-service platform can be used to build apps for varied needs. Apps can be built to share results at a county or state fair, share a schedule and featured events at a roundup, provide training for new volunteers, or offer a state-wide scavenger hunt for members or the public. In addition, using the platform, 4-H Educators can share curriculum in a unique lesson delivery setup through the Quiz Maker.

To launch your own app in 4-H Now you can build it yourself using Grandstand App Builder or pay a few dollars more and have us create the initial design and content loading. This unique approach means that apps will always match the 4-H brand, without the price tag that is usually associated with apps of this quality.

All apps created for 4-H groups include the full menu of options available for any app created using the Grandstand App Builder. Features that are especially useful for 4-H groups include:

  • Schedule or Calendar of events
  • Custom lists to create and manage lists of vendors, attendees, donors, members, groups, catalog of projects, etc.
  • Scavenger Hunt
  • Quizzes
  • Surveys
  • Alerts & Notifications
  • ShoWorks or result-tracking software integration
  • Custom maps
  • Social media
  • Robust Search

The 4-H Now container app is now available in both the Apple App Store and Google Play store.
