PROJECT AWARDS
Applications for the County Project Awards are available on-line, here: https://sheboygan.extension.wisc.edu/award-applications/.
Please be sure the application and direction sheets you have are the current ones – they’ll say “Rev. 2016” on the bottom. All members who have completed 6th grade or above are eligible to apply for these awards. Use the grade you were in this past school year, not the grade you will be in when school starts in September.
**NEW(ish) THIS YEAR! In attempt to make the application a bit more friendly for those in the Junior Division (Grades 6-7), we made a modified application to be completed.
Each person may apply for a maximum of three awards. You must submit a separate application for each award category you want to apply for. Please include only the information related to the award category you are applying for. Example: If you are applying for Communication Arts, Leadership and Overall Achievement, you should be submitting 3 separate application forms. The Communication Arts applications would only include information related to the Communication Arts category, including leadership in the communication arts area. The Leadership application should only include leadership activities. This would include your leadership in the Communication Arts area as well as all of your other 4-H leadership activities from the past year on both the club and county level. The overall achievement application should tell us what you have done in your project areas, including what you learned this year. It should also include community service and leadership activities, as well as any other club, county, and state 4-H sponsored activities you took part in during the past year including trips, fundraising and recreational activities.
