Awards, Records, and More!
Club Recognition Award
Is your 4-H Club doing outstanding work in the areas of Community Service, Leadership or Project Mastery?. If so, you should apply for the Illinois 4-H Club Award! Clubs receiving this award will receive a $75 cash incentive and an award certificate. This is also a great tool to set goals and plan for the upcoming 4-H year. This application can be found @ https://4h.extension.illinois.edu/members/awards.
Important Change to Record Books
Our unit will be utilizing the Experience Award application to replace record books this year. Unfortunately, the changes we asked for from Zingbooks weren’t made due to all of the issues they faced during the migration from a normal work setting. The coders and staff at Zingbooks are working on those changes, but it won’t be ready for us to use in the 2019-2020 records/awards season. 4-H members who have adopted Zingbooks can continue to put items there, just know that is not the way we are going to go for this year.
