We have outstanding youth and volunteers involved in the Athens County 4-H program and we want to recognize their efforts!

Athens County 4-H Achievement Awards – FORM AVAILABLE HERE 

All Athens County 4-H members are strongly encouraged to apply for one of our county 4-H achievement awards. These focus on the member’s efforts and achievements in their project work, as well as leadership, community service and citizenship. You do NOT have to win a first place with your project at the fair, or project judging, to be eligible to apply for these awards! There are LOTS of ways to achieve in 4-H and we’ve tried to list as many of them as possible on this awards form. We want to know how much you have participated, what you’ve learned, and what new things you’ve tried! Even if you don’t have something to put in every category you should still fill out the form. As a bonus, it’s great practice for those college applications and resumes that you will be completing in a few years!

Awards will be selected in each project area in BOTH junior (ages 8 – 13 as of January 1st ) and senior (ages 14 – 18 as of January 1st ) age divisions. Achievement award forms are due to the Extension Office no later than November 10, 2020.


Athens County 4-H Leadership & Special Awards – FORM AVAILABLE HERE

Members and volunteers must be nominated for these special awards by an Athens County 4-H volunteer. For details on each, please click the above link. Leadership and special award nomination forms are due to the Extension Office no later than November 10, 2020.

Athens County 2020 4-H Honor Club – FORM AVAILABLE HERE

This has been a 4-H year like no other! Which is why our honor club application process is going to be unique this year! It wasn't possible for clubs and members to participate in many of the activities that help them earn honor club status in a typical year. But 4-H DID happen this year and we want to know about your COVID 4-H Year!

ALL 4-H clubs that complete and submit this survey with a brief description of how they met the challenges of staying connected and engaged during 2020 will achieve honor club status for the year. Clubs that have already earned their personalized honor club banners will get a special, limited edition COVID 2020 patch to add to it! All first time honor clubs will receive this patch along with their banner!

This is the perfect year to make lemonade out of COVID lemons and add YOUR 4-H club to the ranks of the honor clubs in Athens County! Honor club applications must be submitted by November 10, 2020.
