On June 9, the Ohio 4-H Foundation hosted the virtual Ohio 4-H 2021 Achievement Awards Recognition event. Achievement Awards recognize an individual’s accomplishments in a specific project area. More than 290 Ohio 4-H Achievement Records were reviewed for these awards. Applicants complete a comprehensive record form detailing their 4-H project work, participation in 4-H events and activities, honors, community service, leadership and more.  They also write a short essay sharing how 4-H contributed to their personal development, leadership skills, and career plans. Twenty-eight award winners will attend the National 4-H Congress with youth from all over the country in November in Atlanta. In addition, two 4-H members were selected for the National Dairy Conference and two youth received the Ohio Township Association Local Government Award in recognition of outstanding community service and involvement in local government. The 4-H representatives to the Ohio State Fair Junior Fair Board were also announced. A full list of award winners and sponsors is available.
