Show your appreciation for your 4-H club leader and nominate them for the National Volunteer Leader of the Year Award!
4-H Canada’s National Volunteer Leader of the Year Award recognizes the volunteer leaders who truly are the lifeblood of the 4-H program! With the support and guidance of leaders, 4-H members are given outstanding experiences and skills to help them continue to be responsible, caring and contributing individuals, effecting positive change in the world around them.
The winning leader from every province will receive a $100 cash prize, as well as $100 towards a pizza party for their club. They will also have the opportunity to be chosen as 4-H Canada’s National Volunteer Leader of the Year. The winning national volunteer will receive a prize package including a $1000 cash prize and a trip to the 2019 4-H Canada Leadership Summit in Saskatoon in January 2019.
Nominations for the 2018 National Volunteer Leader of the Year Award opened September 10 and closed November 30, 2018.
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.
