Adams County 4-H Awards

The 4-H Council has adapted the award process to try to fit the needs of our county.  Adams County Awards entries are due in the Extension Office the First Monday in October by 5:00 PM. This deadline is for the Award Application, Adams County Achievement Application, Golden Clover, and Diamond Clover applications.

Adams County 4-H Members have the opportunity to participate in county and state awards and opportunities.  A 4-H’er will need to complete each application that fits the awards that they would like to be considered.

According to the Governor’s Task Force, increased mental health support remains one of the top critical needs for our state long-term flood and pandemic recovery.
