It's that time of year again when 4-H'ers are encouraged to record achievements and learning experiences from the past 4-H year so their achievements can be recognized.  Previously this was known as Record Books or Career Portfolios.  Going forward the process will be known as 4-H Achievement Applications

At the State Level the 4-H Achievement Application is a standard application form used by senior 4-H'ers, age 15-18, for the selection of state award winners, including Nebraska delegates to National 4-H Congress and National 4-H Conference, as well as Nebraska 4-H Foundation scholarship award recipients. 

***** REMINDER: Youth who have completed (3) Achievement Applications throughout their 4-H career are eligible for an additional $50 when complete the Cuming County 4-H Council Scholarship as a graduate. Youth who have completed (5) or more applications in their 4-H career will be awarded an additional $100 if the scholarship is completed. *****
