Salute to Excellence is one way 4-H acknowledges volunteers’ unwavering dedication to 4-H Youth Development. Each county may nominate two outstanding individual volunteers, one in each category:

-Volunteer of the Year Award is given to an individual who has volunteered for 4-H for less than 10 years.

 -Outstanding Lifetime Volunteer Award is given to an individual who has spent more than 10 years volunteering for 4-H.

As many as eight deserving volunteers will be honored annually with statewide Salute to Excellence recognition, as determined by a slate of judges.
