Sponsor a clock trophy!

Clock trophies and purple outstanding of day ribbons

Summer is rapidly approaching, and while we won’t be able to enjoy the Ohio State Fair this year, state-level project judging will take place at the Lausche Building on the state fairgrounds. Each year this is an opportunity for 4-H youth across the state to be evaluated for honors in their project area. Top winners in each special interest project area receive a clock trophy. These awards represent hours of hard work, dedication, and commitment on the part of 4-H’ers.

4-H alumna Emmy Beck-Aden shared the impact of receiving a clock trophy. “The clock trophy is a memorable experience for many members’ 4-H journey. I have been blessed to receive clock trophies during my 4-H career, and each one reminds me of my passion for that project and my determination to use what I’ve learned to truly make the best better.”

You can be a part of this special program by sponsoring a clock trophy for just $45. Sponsors are recognized with an inscription on the award and on the Ohio 4-H Foundation website. Contact to sponsor one or more of the trophies below and help us recognize #TrueLeaders! A group of 4-H members holding purple Outstanding of the Day ribbons.
