Healthy Living 4-H Youth In Action Award Applications Now Accepted

Youth changing their communities is a cornerstone of 4-H Healthy Living work.  Do you have a teen leader who should be recognized for the work done in changing health in their community? The 4‑H Youth in Action Award Program recognizes four confident young leaders with diverse backgrounds and unique perspectives in the 4-H core pillar areas: agriculture, civic engagement, healthy living and STEM. Any of these pillar areas may be appropriate for youth leading change in WCC, but definitely civic engagement or healthy living!

Each year, Pillar Winners will experience an exciting year of telling their 4‑H story and celebrating their leadership. Winners receive:

  • $5,000 higher education scholarship
  • Opportunities to showcase their 4 H impact story
  • All-expenses paid trip to National 4 H Council event
  • Networking opportunities with 4 H celebrities and other prominent alumni
  • Recognition as the official 4 H youth spokesperson for their pillar

Applications are received through March 28 at https://4-h.org/parents/4-h-youth-in-action-awards/#!about-4h-youth-in-action

The application consists of basic contact information, answers to two limited response questions and a one-minute video.  This opportunity is open to 15-18 year-olds.

Licking County Teens are Traveling

Puerto Rico

Travis Allen is traveling with other Ohio 4-H members around Puerto Rico for a 4-H Cultural Immersion experience. The goal of this trip is to experience a different culture, increase multicultural communication skills, and work with Puerto Rico 4-H members to complete service projects. We can’t wait to hear all about Travis’s trip when he returns!

 

National 4-H Club Congress

Erika Grum and Bo Wolford have traveled to Atlanta, Georgia to attend the National 4-H Club Congress. Both were selected as Ohio 4-H Achievement Award winners in a specific project area in order to be selected for this opportunity. Attending 4-H Congress is the highest honor a 4-H member can receive during their 4-H career. These two traveled with the Ohio delegation and get to meet and connect with other 4-H members from across the country. Lisa is serving as one of four chaperones during this trip. Be sure to ask them about their experiences the next time you see them!
