4-H Canada Leadership Awards

The Leadership Awards are 4-H Canada’s signature annual event, bringing the 4-H movement together under one roof to showcase the achievements of the leaders who champion 4-H values and make 4-H possible, as well as to raise funds to ensure the future of 4-H in Canada.

The event recognizes outstanding youth who are deeply involved in 4-H and their communities, as well as volunteers, public and private partners, industry members, and alumni whose steadfast commitment provides young people with the opportunity to be part of meaningful, positive experiences that build responsible, caring and contributing young people.
