2011 Marquette County 4-H Awards

2011 Marquette County 4-H Awards Party!

The Marquette County 4-H Awards Planning Committee invites all Marquette County 4-H members, leaders, parents, families, and volunteers to attend the 2011 Awards Party!  More information on the program will be coming out shortly, but we wanted everyone to save the date!

The 2011 Awards Party will be held:
October 2, 2011
2:00 - 5:00 pm
At the Marquette County Fairgrounds - 4-H Building

About the Awards Program:
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.

Individual Awards
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 year badge and certificate, but are not eligible to receive project pins).  

Leadership, Citizenship, and Achievement Awards
Youth ages 12 – 19 (4-H age determined by age of child on 1/1/2011) 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 Awards
Also, 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!
