4-H Awards

AWARDS AND RECOGNITION – YOUTH

  • Achievement – each fall leaders receive a check list of 4-H club members. They are asked to check off if the individual has achieved. Youth achieving receive a disk for their plaques and credit for the years work in 4-H. Achievement may be measured differently with each club group. Be certain your club establishes a policy clearly identifying how one achieves. For example, Independent Members must, 1) complete project work, 2) show at a Fair, and, 3) complete their record book to achieve.
  • County Project Awards – are only awarded to youth who complete the green record book. Each club should establish a 1) deadline for submission to the club leader, 2) a core of volunteers to recommend youth in project areas, 3) a plan for submitting books and recommendations to the UW-Extension Office by deadline, and 4) appoint no less than one volunteer to assist with record book reviews at the county level. Project awards are given to individuals scoring 75 points or more at the county level..
