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 a 40% application score and a 60% panel interview portion.
We are happy to announce Butler County resident, Kiersten Foit, was selected as one of the top 30. Part of Kiersten’s winnings is a full scholarship to the Abbreviated Teen Conference 2021 and $800 towards attending National 4-H Congress in Atlanta, Georgia, November 26 – 30, 2021. She is an amazing asset to the Butler County 4-H family.
