4-H Achievement Program Announces Gold Award Winners
4-H encourages young people to set and achieve their goals. To that end, the Kentucky 4-H Achievement Program was created to reward ambitious and accomplished young people throughout the state.
In the highly competitive 4-H Achievement Program, young people receive recognition and prizes for their accomplishments in 4-H and their community. 4-H’ers can start accumulating points as soon as they start 4-H and begin earning recognition by ten years of age.
Each district can submit ten applicants for the gold award. Of the 70 statewide applicants, 30 are selected. The competitive program consists of an application and a panel interview portion.
After careful review from all the judges, this year’s winners were selected.
Butler County 4-Her, Gabe McFayden, has achieved gold as one of this year’s winners! Gabe has been hard at work for several years being a face in local, area and state 4-H events. He has served in many leadership and volunteer capacities, not only through 4-H, but also in his community. Congratulations to Gabe and good luck on striving for the Emerald Award!
