Dunn County 4-H Awards Packet

The 4-H Awards System may appear somewhat intricate at first glance. However, this this packet aims to clear up any confusion about the awards process. In Dunn County, the 4-H award system can be broken down into three parts, (Part 1) Record Book Awards, (Part 2) Awards Requiring Application, and (Part 3) Recognition Awards. The awards process can be further narrowed down by separating awards into three types, Club Level Youth Awards, County Level Youth Awards, and Adult Leader Awards.
