Show your appreciation for your 4-H club leader and nominate them for 4-H Canada’s top award for volunteers!
The National Volunteer Leader of the Year Award recognizes the volunteer leaders who are the biggest champions of the 4-H program! With their support and guidance, 4-H members receive outstanding experiences and skills that help them continue to be responsible, caring and contributing youth who are positively impacting the world around them.
One leader from each province will be selected as the Provincial Volunteer Leader of the Year and will receive a $100 cash prize, as well as $100 towards a pizza party for their club.
The provincial winner could also be chosen as the National Volunteer Leader of the Year! The winning national volunteer will receive a prize package including a $1,000 cash prize and a trip to the 2020 Leadership Summit in Ottawa in February 2020.
4-H Canada will present the National Volunteer Leader of the Year Award at the 2020 Leadership Awards in Ottawa on February 10, 2020.
Nominations for the 2019 National Volunteer Leader of the Year Award closed October 30, 2019.
2019 award recipients will be announced in January 2020.
Selection of the provincial winners and overall national winner are based on two 4-H member references, club involvement, community involvement, length of involvement, and how much the members have learned and developed as a result of the leader.
