Recognizing volunteers for their hard work and dedication is very important to the 4-H Youth Development Program. Every county has some outstanding volunteers who should be considered for these special awards. Below is a description for each award category. Please note that a resume is required for all nominations. The Outstanding 4-H Volunteer Nomination Form and Resume Form is included and must be filled out for each applicant and submitted via e-mail. Three letters of support and a picture depicting the volunteer’s work with youth should be attached to the application. The deadline for submitting award applications is February 1, 2019. Awardees will be recognized at the Annual 4-H Volunteer Leaders Conference, which will be held February 22-23, 2019, at Mississippi State University Bost Building B Conference Center.
