Friend of 4-H and Montgomery Leadership Award Nominations Due – September 1
The 4-H Committee is now accepting nominations for the Muskingum County Friend of 4-H Award, which recognizes an individual, family, business or organization who has provided exceptional support to the county 4-H program.
It’s also time for outstanding 4-H volunteers to be nominated to receive the John & Dorothy Montgomery Leadership Award.
Nomination forms for both awards are available at the Extension Office or on our website under 4-H Youth Development>Volunteer Resources. Completed nominations are due to the Extension Office by September 1. Because the deadline falls on Sunday, we will accept the next business day – Tuesday, September 3.
Both awards will be presented at the Volunteer Recognition Banquet on September 25.
