2015-16 Awards and Year End Celebration

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. Here is the Awards and Year End Celebration Invitation. We hope you can attend this year's event. It is sure to be a wonderful time!
Individual Awards
As in past years, 4-H youth members (ages 9 and up) need to fill out the Individual Project Awards Forms 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 2015-16 Project Pins List is to help you identify what projects you are eligible for. 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 Awards
Youth ages 12 – 19 (4-H age determined by age of child on 1/1/2016) 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 and 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!
