4-H State Awards

Idaho 4-H Key Award

The Idaho 4-H Key Award gives recognition to 4-H members who have achieved significant leadership in their 4-H club and their county. The program’s objective is to encourage project growth, a broad program of 4-H activities over the years, and the ultimate development of outstanding citizens. The wearer of the Idaho 4-H Key can be proud of his or her contribution to club and community.

Awards will be determined by your county awards committee based on applications. County Extension staff members submit the names of the Key Award winners to the state 4-H Youth Development office. There is no state due date, so names may be submitted at any time.

The award in the Idaho 4-H Key Award program is a gold key charm for girls and a tie tack for boys. A certificate is also awarded to each recipient. Idaho 4-H Key Awards are presented at a countywide event.
