Sounds intimidating doesn't it? It's really not that difficult - you have all the info - just type it up and add some photos...
It is basically a summary of your 4-H and community activities- you choose which area you did the most in (Ag, STEM, Leadership, Healthy Living) - compile the information by following the guide found at https://4h.unl.edu/achievement-application and submit to our office by 5pm on November 1. Awards will be given at the County and State Level in Junior and Senior Divisions.
Some submissions are 1 page long, some of you will easily fill the 3 page limit! We can't wait to read about what you've learned and accomplished in your 4-H year.
