Candler, Emanuel Students place at Georgia 4-H Dean’s Awards Competition

The Georgia 4-H Dean’s Awards competition provided 26 Georgia 4-H youth the opportunity to showcase their talent, hard work and commitment to their communities. The Dean’s Award is one of the highest honors Georgia 4-H members can earn.

Competitors submit a cumulative portfolio that reflects their entire 4-H career, and high-scoring submissions are invited to participate in a separately judged interview session.

A Dean’s Award is presented each year in the following six project areas:

  • Agricultural and Environmental Sciences
  • Civic Engagement
  • Family and Consumer Sciences
  • The William “Bill” Edwards 4-H Dean’s Award for Communications and the Arts
  • STEM
  • The James Harris 4-H Dean’s Award for Leadership

The top three finishers in each area receive a medal for their achievement. First-place winners receive Master 4-H’er status, a $500 scholarship and recognition at 4-H Day at the Capitol.
