2016 Youth in Action Award Guidelines

National 4-H Council’s Youth in Action Awards recognize outstanding 4-H’ers who epitomize 4-H youth empowerment and leadership. We will honor four confident, accomplished 4-H’ers who have gained critical life skills through their 4-H experience and have utilized those skills to overcome a challenge, or challenges, they have faced. The award winners will also demonstrate how they have positively impacted their family, peers and community through their 4-H experiences. The 2016 awards will expand to highlight youth in each of our core areas: Agriculture and Animal Sciences, Citizenship, Healthy Living and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). Through a formal selection process, one awardee will be chosen within each pillar area: • Youth in Action: Agriculture and Animal Sciences • Youth in Action: Citizenship • Youth in Action: Healthy Living • Youth in Action: STEM One overall national Youth in Action Award 2016 winner will be selected from the four pillar winners. The Youth in Action Awards are presented at National 4-H Council’s Legacy Awards. The 7th annual Legacy Awards will be held on Tuesday, April 12, 2016, in Washington D.C.
