Honoring Ohio's Best

4-H Achievement Awards

The voices of Ohio’s outstanding 4-H members were the highlight of the 2022 Ohio 4-H Achievement Awards, held earlier this month at the Nationwide & Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center in Columbus.

Twenty-nine youth were recognized for their achievements in a specified project area, along with their leadership, service, and overall contributions as a 4-H member.

Banquet Award Presentations Each honoree received a certificate from Dr. Kirk Bloir, state 4-H leader, and was introduced to the audience with a video where they shared the importance of 4-H in their life. "4-H has Impacted my life by teaching me something new every day,” said Sadie Holman, Licking County 4-H member and recipient of the Achievement Award for Beef.

The evening was hosted by the Ohio 4-H Foundation, with Franklin County 4-H alumni Brooke Fleshman as the featured speaker. Brooke shared her experience as a member of the 2021 National 4-H Congress Design Team. This year’s Achievement Award recipients will attend the 2022 4-H Congress in Atlanta this fall.
