Club Community Service Award

This award recognizes a 4-H club who has made outstanding contributions to their local communities. These efforts must have responded to real community needs and had a positive impact.

County Medal - Member Award

A county medal recognizes a 4-H member’s growth in the work they have done in a particular project area. It looks at project skills learned, as well as community service, mentorship, and/or demonstrated leadership in which the member has participated. It recognizes the individual rather than the project. Members may only receive a specific county medal once per project in each age division (intermediate & senior), with the exception of members may receive a fashion revue or achievement medal in the same year they receive a project medal.
