News Release

How strong is your 4-H family spirit?

The Illinois 4-H Foundation welcomes nominations for the 2017 4-H Family Spirit Award. The Illinois 4-H Family Spirit Award recognizes a family with at least three generations and at least 15 different family members (including in-laws) that have either been 4-H members, leaders, or volunteers with at least 100 cumulative years of 4-H membership or volunteerism represented within the family. Selection is based on the total number of family members with 4-H connections, the total number of years of 4-H involvement, the diversity of experiences and recognitions earned by the 4-H members, and the collective impact that family members have made as advocates of their county and state 4-H programs. Online applications are available at: http://4hfoundation.illinois.edu/content/family-spirit-award. Nominations are due May 1. 4-H is a program of the University of Illinois Extension. You can learn more about 4-H opportunities in Bureau County by stopping by our office located at 850 E. Thompson St., Princeton, IL. The Mission of University of Illinois Extension is to provide practical education you can trust to help people, businesses and communities solve problems, develop skills and build a better future.
