County Medal Applications
4-H County Medal Applications are due to the Extension office by October 15. County medals are awarded in project areas and are based on participation, achievement, and learning in your 4-H project. Filling out a separate application for each project makes it easier for the judge to see what you’ve done in your project. Any 4-H member can apply for a county medal and be recognized for their project work. County project medals are awarded at the 4-H Awards Banquet. Medals for events like judging contests, fashion revue, and public presentations do not to be applied for—they are selected based on scores earned at contests.
