Every year at the Annual Awards Banquet awards are given to individuals nominated by 4-H members, clubs and/or leaders from Wharton County. Any 4-H member, leader or club may nominate for these awards.
Distinguished 4-H Adult Leader Award:
Nominees are judged on their leadership contribution to the 4-H program as a whole, as well as to the success of the club in which he/she is a leader. Leadership participation in non-4-H activities such as civic, youth, public, church and school activities will also be taken into consideration. One leader will be selected each year and will receive recognition at the 4-H Awards Banquet.
4-H Alumni Award:
The Alumni Award is given to individuals who have completed a highly successful 4-H career, who have distinguished themselves in service to others and have continued to help with the 4-H program, and have specified the amount of years as a former 4-Her. A maximum of one (1) alumnus will be selected.
