Every year the Whitley County 4-H Program has various awards available for anyone to nominate a 4-H volunteer that has gone above and beyond in helping within the Whitley County 4-H Program. Listed below is a description of each of these awards and an application to submit.



This is a special award presented to a person who has given to the 4-H program above and beyond normal expectations.  This leadership should be awarded to a tenured person, one who has given many years of leadership service to the 4-H program.  It is not an award given each year, but one that the committee may choose to award.
