Recipients of the 2012 state 4-H project awards were recognized at the Iowa 4-H Youth Conference in June. A state 4-H project award is the highest achievement 4-H’ers can receive in 4-H Youth Development project work through ISU Extension and Outreach. Information about the recipients is available by county.
4-H youth development specialist Brenda Allen said these awards indicate that the youths not only have mastered skills in that particular area, but also have shared their knowledge through presentations, workshops or helping others. In addition, 4-H project award winners must convey what they’ve gained in their project through a rigorous state application and interview process.
