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.

Competition Resources

State 4-H Congress also hosts our state level Leadership in Action competition. The 4-H Leadership in Action program is designed to recognize the work of 4-H’ers as leaders in their communities. These 4-H’ers have identified issues or needs in their community and have developed and implemented ways to make a difference. We will recognize our eight state finalists during the Tuesday evening Leadership Banquet. During this program, we will announce our two winners for state recognition. These winners will receive Master 4-H status, participate in the 4-H Parade of Winners during the Annual Banquet on Thursday night, and have the option of representing Georgia at National 4-H Conference in Chevy Chase, MD, or a $500 scholarship. Applications must be submitted via Qualtrics by the deadline (contact your County Extension Office for the exact deadline).  This means that a signed electronic copy must be uploaded to the respective District’s Qualtrics link by the advertised deadline.  Your district’s link can be found in 4-H Event Registration.  If you have any questions, please contact
