4-H offers many educational and fun trips to its members. Douglas County 4-H’s Leaders Association budgets thousands of dollars every year to help pay for these trips. These awards are based on an evaluation of members’ accomplishments and experiences in 4-H projects and activities. This is called the Member Evaluation (M.E.) process and it happens every September. Youth 13 years and older may apply for funds by filling in an application form and doing a short interview with the Association’s board of directors. The form helps youth present their accomplishments in
4-H leadership, projects and activities and the interview gives them an opportunity to discuss their 4-H experiences in more detail. The process takes some time, but funds for some of these trips range up to more than $1,000. The experience also helps prepare youth for college and jobs.
The M.E. forms are mailed to every eligible member the first week of August and are due the Tuesday after Labor Day. Interviews are conducted within 2 weeks and the trips are awarded during Achievement Night in October.
For more information or to download forms, see below. You may also contact a club leader, a member of the Board of Directors, or the 4-H Youth Development office at 715-395-1363.
