Jo Daviess County 4-H

Jo Daviess County 4-H

State Award Applications

Award applications are best begun early in a 4-H career and span the length of a member's involvement with the organization. Projects are combined into award areas, though only one actual application is completed. Award applications are important as they represent the only way to win a project medal, the only way to win a first year award or trophy, the only way to win the Top County 4-H'er Award, and the only way to be considered for participation in the 4-H Congress in Atlanta, GA.
