The Clover Key Award, recognizes a new, committed and creative leader who has provided outstanding service to 4-H. The Doorknob Award, recognizes a volunteer who has “opened the door” for the 4-H program through special outreach, marketing, or other efforts. Finally, the 4-H Family of the Year Award will be given to a local family for demonstrating outstanding involvement in and service to 4-H throughout the past year.
Members of the Morgan County 4-H Extension Staff and 4-H Advisory Council helped make plans for the upcoming event with help from the 4-H Teen Council. Together, we would like to invite all who have supported and participated in 4-H this past year to come collectively recognize our county-wide 4-H participation. We are excited to share this night with all of you!
