Macomb County 4-H Awards Program

Michigan 4-H members currently enrolled in a Macomb County 4-H program and are 11 to 19 years of age as of January 1 of the current program year are eligible for the Macomb County 4-H Awards Program! We want to recognize Macomb County 4-H youth for engaging in learning experiences that resulted in outstanding knowledge and life-skill development. 

Why should you apply? Participating in the County 4-H Awards Program will help you:

  • Learn how to better communicate your accomplishments on a professional application such as scholarships, college entrance applications, resumes, and cover letters for employment
  • Have more experience and be better able to communicate during job interviews
  • Be encouraged to set new goals, continue building skills and assets, and broaden interests
  • Win a cash prize

Macomb County 4-H members and volunteers are encouraged to checkout the new Macomb County 4-H Awards Program website, which houses the applications for each type of award offered. The website also offers awards that require a nomination such as Clear the Hurdle Award, Sportsmanship Award, 4-H Volunteer of the Year, 4-H Leader of the Year, 4-H Lifetime Achievement, and Friend of 4-H.

Let’s work together to recognize everyone’s hard-work, resiliency, and learning this year! Applications and nominations are due September 30, 2021. Questions? Contact 4-H Program Coordinator, Katelyn Golembiewski, at burnska9@msu.edu.
