Awards

Fort Bend County 4-H Awards Program Objective

The 4-H Awards Program is designed to recognize youth for their project work, leadership, and personal growth and development. The Awards Year runs the same as the 4-H year (September 1 through August 31).

Project Completion Pin Project Pins

National 4-H Project Pins were created to acknowledge youth who have completed a 4-H project during the 4-H year.

A  4-H Project has four components:

  1. Learning Experiences of 6 or more sequential learning experiences of 20-60 minutes in length totaling 2 hours or more.
  2. Community Service
  3. Leadership
  4. Exhibition of Project Work

Combining all these components allows members to reach the projects full potential and get the most out of it to have the greatest experiences possible. Click here to learn more about the four components of the 4-H project

To receive your award, you must complete the form below. Enter as many times as you would like depending on how many projects you’ve accomplished in the 2020-2021 4-H year. You will need to submit a new entry for every project completed.

Applications are now being accepted for the 2020-2021 4-H year.

*Applications will close on June 7th*

STAR AWARDS star_shooting - Copy

The Star Awards are a series of awards showing progression of 4-H involvement, including growth and diversification of both the 4-H member and their projects/events.  The series begins with the Rising Star (Step 1), Bronze Star (Step 2), Silver Star (Step 3), “I Dare You” Award (Step 4), and ultimately ending with the Gold Star (Step 5).  Each award may only be received once.

These awards were designed to be received in the sequence stated, but being a prior recipient of an award is not a requirement.  Once you have received a step award you may not apply for a lower step award (no regression). A 4-H Recordbook will need to be submitted with each of the star award.
