More about Earning an Award:


The purpose of awards is to recognize 4-H members in a particular project area who feel they have done a great job that year. This is a self-nominaiton award - YOU DECIDE and YOU do the record book. You don't have to have the champion beef or a project considered for the State Fair, you just need to have set some goals (over the past 2 years that show growth) and met them. 
Members must meet these requirements:
1. Be enrolled in the project area for at least 2 years.
2. Complete project record sheets for the current year and include record sheets from previous years (see below - basic, experienced, or advanced).
3. Complete the 4-H Yearly Summary (see below).
4. Show growth in the project area through setting progressively more challenging goals and meeting them.
You may add as much supplemental information as you want to your project records including picturs, clippings, etc.
Your book should be done neatly and it is best practice to answer the above questions on a computer and print it out.
THE BIG THING TO REMEMBER IS TO WIN AN AWARD, YOU MUST APPLY! Forms are below.
