Ohio 4-H offers a variety of awards and opportunities at the state level

A few years ago, the Teen Leadership Design Team developed a “Teen Table” that shared basic information for opportunities for older 4-H members.  The goal is to have this information all in one location in an easy-to-read format.

OSU has posted the updated chart (for the 2017 opportunity year) on the state 4-H website, awards and scholarships page (http://www.ohio4h.org/awardsandscholarships).
