Achievement Application & Career Portfolios Due November 1!!!
It's time again to submit your 4-H Achievement Applications and Career Portfolios as the 4-H year nears completion. At the county level for selection of county awards only, 4-H members can choose to submit a Career Portfolio or the Achievement Application.
The Achievement Application will be used at the state level to selection winners for 4-H Congress, Conference, scholarships, and other leadership opportunities that arise statewide. By having one single form that more closely resembles the kinds of questions being asked on college applications and in resumes, 4-H’ers will be better prepared to be college and job ready while keeping a record of the achievements. This form was piloted last year and will be used as an alternative to the Career Portfolio. This form is much shorter and easier to use than the Career Portfolio.
The Nebraska 4-H Achievement Application can be found at: https://4h.unl.edu/achievement-application.
The Nebraska 4-H Career Portfolio form can be found at: https://4h.unl.edu/awards-recognition/career-portfolio.
All Achievement Applications and Career Portfolios are due in the office by Tuesday, November 1st! Let us know as you have questions.
