Bayfield County 4-H annually recognizes its older members’ achievement and leadership potential through the Older Member Awards process.  4-H’ers who will be entering the 8th grade this fall (and members up to 12th grade) are eligible to apply.

This is the process through which teen members are chosen to be Ambassadors and receive scholarships for trips such as Citizenship Washington Focus, State 4-H Conference, Winter Camp and the Bayfield County Adventure Trips.

Below is a cover letter that provides information for applying for 4-H Older Member Awards.
