Clark County 4-H’ers receive Gold Achievement Award

Clark County 4-H’ers Clay Comer and Sydney Miller have been selected as the 2019 Gold Achievement Award recipients.

4-H encourages young people to set and achieve their goals. To that end, the Kentucky 4-H Achievement Program was created to reward ambitious and accomplished young people throughout the state.

In the highly competitive 4-H Achievement Program, young people receive recognition and prizes for their accomplishments in 4-H and their community. 4-H’ers can start accumulating points as soon as they start 4-H and begin earning recognition in the sixth grade.

4-H’ers at least in the 10th grade, and who have reached Level V can apply for the gold award.

Each district can submit 10 applicants for the gold award.

Of the 70 statewide applicants, 30 are selected. The competitive program consists of an application and a panel interview portion.

Gold Competitive Achievement winners receive a full scholarship to the Teen Conference on the University of Kentucky Campus June 10-13, and an $800 scholarship toward attending National 4-H Congress Conference.
