Traditional Record Books Return for 2020-2021 

The Awards and Recognition committee voted to return to having traditional record books this year and celebrating youth's awards and achievements in October at the County Achievement night. The committee is going to look into having alternative options for the 2021-2022 4-H year.  If you would like to be part of this discussion or have ideas to share, please contact Tracy Keifeheim. As 2020-2021 was not a typical year, please have youth share as much as they can in their books! The committee is looking forward to reading how youth were creative, persistent, and innovative! Please remember the club determines the due date at the club level, and books being submitted for county-level awards are due Sept 11, 2021!
