Counties select inductees for their exceptional work in contributing to the lives of 4-H members and the overall 4-H program.  Many inductees served as club leaders, youth mentors, fair superintendents or fair board members, Iowa State University Extension county council members, county youth council members, fair judges, financial supporters, chaperones or ISU Extension staff members. The inductees have demonstrated dedication, encouragement, commitment and guidance to Iowa’s 4-H’ers through the years.
 
“Iowa 4-H volunteers and staff greatly impact our youth, and this is one way we can recognize them for their remarkable service and commitment,” said Tillie Good, program manager, Iowa 4-H Youth Development.   
 
The Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame was initiated in 2002 to help commemorate the 100th anniversary of 4-H. Information about previous inductees to the Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame also is available on the Iowa 4-H Foundation website, organized by year and by county.
