We will be hosting an informational meeting on Thursday, October 21. During this session, Kiersten will work with participants to better understand the following:

  • What is the Ohio 4-H Achievement Award Form?
  • What criteria are used in judging award applicatons?
  • How do I keep track of all my activities and projects?
  • What can I do to catch the judge's attention?
  • Is the way in which I word my activities really all that important?
  • When I'm all done, what do I need to hand in?
  • What are the different awards levels and how do I advance?
  • ...and samples will be available!

If this sounds like a meeting that may help you, be sure to attend. As you prepare materials, invite your parent(s) and your club advisors, if you like; they may be assisting you as you complete your application. Bring any records that you have compiled or past applications that have been submitted. We'll see what we can do to get you started in the right direction.

Although this meeting is geared toward older youth, it's never too early to start keeping track of your 4-H achievements! Members of any age and their parent/guardian are welcome!

Click here for the My 4-H Career Record Book. This is one of the many items available at the Achievement Award Informational Meeting. Members (and parents!) can use this fillable pdf form to keep a record of your 4-H career, and keeping records in this book will make application for awards and scholarships easy! No handwriting necessary!

Call the office or email Kiersten by October 19 if you'll be attending so adequate materials can be prepared. We look forward to seeing you on the 21st!

The Teen Leadership Council will also be hosting two different Achievement Form Workshops for 4-H members statewide this fall - October 3 (registration due by October 1) and November 7 (registration due by November 4). Details and registration information for these two workshops can be found at go.osu.eduTLC.
