Leadership in Action
The Leadership in Action program is designed to recognize the work of Junior (7th - 8th grade) and Senior (9th - 12th grade) 4-H'ers as leaders in their communities. 4-H'ers will identify an issue or need in the community or an issue related to agriculture or the environment. Once this issue or need has been selected, the 4-H'er will determine ways to make a difference and then enact his/her plan. The process focuses on leadership engagement by the 4-H'er.
One of the highest awards Georgia 4-H Members can earn is a 4-H Dean's Award. Competition for the Dean's Awards is open to all 9th-12th grade (Senior) 4-H members, regardless of their prior participation or winning status in other projects. Dean's Awards participants will submit a cumulative portfolio that spans their entire 4-H career and participate in an interview session.
