4-H Year End

As the 4-H year draws to a close, we ask each club leaders and parent of an Independent member to let us know what accomplishments your member(s) have made over the course of the 4-H year. Project Completion Reports, Club Financial Statements (clubs ONLY), and applications for trips and awards are all due to the CCE Office by the end of August.

In early October of each year, 4-H volunteers and youth are honored during our Achievement Day Ceremony. Awards are given for outstanding work in many areas of 4-H. Be sure to check out the links on this page for more information about the many scholarships, trips, and awards available to 4-H members. Applications for most awards are due by the end of August each year. Exceptions include the Russell B. Ace Memorial Scholarship due May 1st and NYS Foundation Scholarship due mid-February. All are invited to attend this special event. Check your September edition of Livewire for Achievement Day details!

Mandatory Forms

Club Financial Statement - All clubs should fill out this form - even if you did not have any income or expenses. Remember - If you collected money in club dues, through fundraising, or received a Club Premium Check for the Hemlock Fair, you should report that on this form.

Project Completion Report - Use this form to let us know what project(s) your 4-H members have completed. This is not necessary for Cloverbuds. This information is useful for your records and helps us maintain an accurate reflection of youth and adult 4-H involvement. In addition, we report this information at both the State and Federal levels in order to pursue funding for our program. Each youth member is also encouraged to keep track of their 4-H work in his/her Project Summary Book (See Resources Page).
