Gold Medal Awards are used to recognize members who have shown outstanding effort, personal growth, an increase of knowledge and skill and outstanding achievement in their category!
Any 4-H Advisor or Jr. Fair Committee Member may initiate the nomination for a Gold Medal Award. It is preferred that the candidate is not related to the nominator.
All nominated projects must have been completed based on specific project requirements, example: Grade Day, Skill-a-thon and Judging. All Life Skills Project Nominations MUST have been evaluated at the County Grade Day in order to be eligible for the Gold Medal Award.
Please mail, email, or drop off gold medal nominations to our office by September 27th!
You can email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
