Nominate a 4-H volunteer for a Salute to Excellence Award

Consider nominating an outstanding volunteer for a 2018 4-H Salute to Excellence Award. This National 4-H volunteer recognition award honors volunteers who demonstrate exemplary service to 4-H, while promoting service through volunteerism as both an opportunity and a privilege.

Nominations are accepted in two categories:

  • The Volunteer of the Year Award is for individuals who have served as 4-H volunteers for less than 10 years at the local, county, district or state level.
  • The Outstanding Lifetime Volunteer Award is for individuals who have served 10 or more years at the local, county, district or state level.

Minnesota will select an individual in each category to advance to regional competition.  A nomination will consist of an overview of the applicant’s 4-H and relevant community volunteer experiences and two letters of recommendation.

View complete guidelines.

For application support and to submit your nomination, contact Extension Educator and Volunteer Systems Director Becky Harrington at willi107@umn.edu or 218-236-2012.

All nomination materials are due by Sept. 15, 2017.
