Junior Achievement Banquet 5/3/2016

The Recognition Banquets for 2017

Because we have received a total of 120 members who will be recognized this year for filling out the Ohio Achievement Form and the Junior Achievement Form we have grown out of our facilities.

We recognized the older youth who fill out the Ohio 4-H Achievement Form with a banquet which was held on April 5th at the Shalom United Methodist Church in Carroll.

We will then recognize the Junior Achievement Form participants with a banquet on May 3rd at the Shalom United Methodist Church in Carroll. RSVPs are required and were due April 15th, 2016. Contact Sue Suttles at suttles.1@osu.edu or 740-652-7271 if you still need to make a reservation.


State 4-H Achievement Award Results!

The following individuals have been selected by the State 4-H Achievement Award Selection team as an award winner or an alternate.  In the near future, those state award winners will be receiving contracts and other information from Allen Auck at the State 4-H Office. First and second alternates will not receive anything from the State 4-H Office.

Please join us in congratulating these youth on top State 4-H honors! Fairfield County received 16 awards – awarded to 13 youth. 5 state winners, 3 first alternates, and 8 second alternates! The state winners will be representing Fairfield and Ohio 4-H at the National 4-H Congress in Atlanta, Georgia this fall.

The future is bright! Congrats to all!

Thank you to all members who completed an Ohio Achievement Form or Junior Achievement Form. Because our program to recognize these members has grown to 40 youth completing the Ohio 4-H Achievement Form and 73 completing the Junior Achievement Form, we have outgrown the facilities where this recognition is held. A great problem to have!

Therefore, we will have two recognition events(Achievement Banquets) this year.

For all Older Youth who completed the Ohio 4-H Achievement Form we will have your recognition night on Tuesday, April 5th, at Shalom United Methodist Church in Carroll, starting at 7:00 p.m.

For all Junior Achievement participants we will have your recognition night on Tuesday, May 3rd, at Shalom United Methodist Church in Carroll, starting at 7:00 p.m.

Look for your invitation in the mail soon and hope to see all you at these events. If questions, please contact the office at 740-652-7260.
