Jersey County 4-H 4-H offers a wide range of recognition opportunities for every type of 4-H.
Involvement, both at the state and local levels. ENGAGE….is the basic recognition a member receives just by being a part of the program. There isn’t an application process to win; members simply earn it for being themselves! This recognition happens at club and county programs. EXPERIENCE…. offers recognition for members who participate in activities and events throughout the 4-H program year. Bronze, Silver, & Gold Clover Award winners receive county recognition. Diamond and Emerald Clover Award winners are honored at a state awards ceremony. There is no limit to the number of members who can achieve each level – if members do the work, they earn the award. EXCEL….is where competition kicks in. At this level, members compete against other 4-H members for a very limited number of top awards. This achievement occurs at the state level. Jersey County 4-H held their annual Achievement program on Sunday, November 7, at the Jersey County Extension Office. Members were recognized for a variety of awards and accomplishments that they achieved over the last year. Ten members were recognized for Experience Awards. Members earning Gold Clover Awards included: Ava Pulley, Clark Blasa, Dinah Slusser and Leann Woodring. Members earning Silver Clover Awards included: Ava Pegram, Sam Pulley and Taylor Woodring. Members earning Bronze Clover Awards included: Grant Blasa, Jena Pegram and Kelsey Belcher. Elissabeth Walsh was recognized as Outstanding 4-H Member. Abel Cannon received the Outstanding 1st Year Member Award. Leann Woodring was recognized for the “I Dare You” Leadership Award. Clay Wadlow earned Outstanding Treasurer for his role as club treasurer for the 4-H club Southwestern Hoof and Horn. Peyton Eldridge earned Outstanding Secretary as club secretary for the 4-H club Happy Trails. 4-H club leaders were also recognized for years of service to the Jersey County program. Thirteen club leaders across seven clubs had a combined total of 60 years of dedication to making the best better through 4-H. We can’t wait for you to join the club!
