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!

Achievement Banquets – Yes, there will be TWO this year. Please READ!

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.
