4-H Achievement Night Plans

Please save the date for 4-H Achievement Night: Monday, November 7, at 6:30 p.m. Additional details are forthcoming. Thanks to all who completed our survey regarding the event. You asked for different, so we're working on making this a different celebration!

To that extent, please consider nominating yourself or someone else for some special county-level awards. The deadline for these has been extended to Monday, October 24 at Noon.

  2. Friend of 4-H - This award is given annually to an individual who makes a big impact on Orange 4-H. Nominate the same as above.
  3. Harry T. Peters, Jr. Award - This is open to senior age 4-H members (14-18) who exhibit Mr. Peters' qualities of hard work, honesty, service to others, and passion for agriculture. Nomination instructions are posted online
  4. 4-H Scholarship - Award of $500 presented to a 2016 high school graduate enrolled in further education. Applications are online
  5. New! Pillars of Character Awards - This is for a 4-H member of any age who exemplifies the positive character traits of Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship. Read more about these awards here, and nominate online by clicking here
