The Awards program is an annual event that provides an opportunity to recognize and celebrate the many accomplishments of 4-H members, leaders, volunteers, and families. An invitation to this event will be posted later this month.
As in past years, 4-H youth members (ages 9 and up) need to fill out the Project Awards Form if they would like to be considered for a project pin. Each enrolled 4-H member is eligible for a year pin and a project pin. The same project pin and/or award cannot be received two years in a row. Cloverbuds (ages 5-8) will receive a certificate, but are not eligible to receive project pins.
Leadership, Citizenship, and Achievement AwardsYouth ages 12 – 19 (4-H age determined by age of child on 1/1/2013) are also eligible for Leadership, Citizenship, and Achievement Awards. Youth must fill out a cover sheet for these awards and write an essay.
Volunteer and Community 4-H AwardsAlso, be sure to make nominations for Volunteer & Community 4-H Awards. Youth, leaders, volunteers and parents are encouraged to fill out a nomination sheet. This is your opportunity to recognize the outstanding contributions and efforts that others make to 4-H!
The Awards Handbook provides more information on the awards process and eligibility for all awards. If you have questions about the awards, please contact your club leader or the MSU Extension office.
