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.

Thank You for Your Support

Thank you for supporting the 2020 Leadership Awards on February 10 at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa.

It was an impactful and memorable evening as we recognized outstanding youth who are deeply involved in 4-H and their communities, as well as volunteers, alumni and partners whose steadfast commitment provides young people with the opportunity to be part of meaningful, positive experiences that build responsible, caring and contributing young leaders.
