4-H Teen Recognition Night is an evening of excitement, friendship, and good times. Traditionally, 4-H has provided the means for a young person to receive awards and recognition for outstanding effort in project work, leadership, citizenship, and achievement. Selection for trips and awards is made by a volunteer committee who review the 4-H Member Record Books. 4-H Member Record Books are distributed to 4-H members by 4-H club leaders and are available at the Extension office. 4-H Member Record Books are to be completed by 4-H members. A letter is sent in October to teens ages 13 years and older. This letter requests that they sign up for the trips and awards they want to apply for and provides the date that these applications and record books are due. Once selections have been made, a date is set and 4-Hers from across the county come together with their families and friends to enjoy dinner and to be recognized for all of their accomplishments during the 4-H year. The event is well attended with honored guests including our 4-H Resource Educator, 4-H Team Leader, CCE Board President, and 4-H Program Issue Committee Chairman. Once certificates and awards are handed out, many of the teens thank their parents and club leaders for encouraging them to do their best, in all that they do, including 4-H.
