(Deadline is Thursday, June 30, 2016)
The Glenn County 4-H Council annually sponsors trophies and medals for outstanding participants in the following projects:

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
You may apply for an award in more than one project area as long as you have enrolled and participated in that 4-H project through the program year. You must meet the "ABA requirements to exhibit at fair" to be eligible.
HOW IS SOMEONE SELECTED?
Points are earned for participation in county 4-H events and for exhibiting at the County Fair. Primary members (ages 5 -8) must have participated in 3 of the 4 events and displayed at least 1 item at the Glenn County Fair in each project area that they are entering.
HOW ARE POINTS EARNED?
Ten points are earned for participation (i.e., exhibiting, judging, emceeing, creating judging classes, etc.) in each county event. These county events are Fashion Revue, Food Fiesta, Arts & Creative Skills Day, Home Economics & Arts Field Day and the County Presentation Day.
At each event, regardless of the number of entries or exhibits, 10 points are the maximum total which may be earned. Those 10 points are counted toward each project entered if it relates to project.
Points are also earned for participation in the Glenn County Fair, with each entry receiving 5 points (for a maximum of 4 entries). Extra points are earned for the placing of fair exhibits. First place ribbons are awarded 10 points; 2nd place ribbons earn 7 points; and 3rd place ribbons earn 3 points. A "Best of Division" or "Best of Show" designation receives an additional 5 points.
Of those earning 75 points or more in a project, the top 10% are eligible to receive a special medal.
The top scoring person with 75 pts. or more in each project in Senior, Intermediate and Junior Divisions receives a trophy.
Those Primary Division members who meet the requirements will receive a rosette ribbon.
Awards are presented at the Star Awards Barbeque in September.
