County Medal Applications
County Medal Application
We have a new process this year for applying for county project medals. Instead of the application we’ve used in the past you will need to turn in your record book and a very, short and easy one page application listing the medals you are applying for. What is a county project medal you may ask? It is a 4-H pin given for outstanding 4-H project work each year. Medals are available in all project areas and more than one may be given out per project. Those considered must have a complete record book detailing what they did in their project.

Head, Heart, Hands and Health Awards
This award can be for a leader that goes above and beyond (heart), a member with a great community service project (hands), or a community member that helped the 4-H program. Anything and anyone is eligible – you just need to nominate them and explain how it relates to head, heart, hands, or health. Nominations are due by September 30, 2017. There is not a form just email the information to Shannon at sgordon@wsu.edu.
