Leader of the Legacy

This award is created for youth by youth members since 2013.  It was designed to be a “Hall of Fame” for an outstanding youth member each year.  Leaders of the Legacy are graduating seniors, nominated by the 4-H Agents.  Youth must have been an active member of 4-H and truly represent the values and legacy of 4-H:  Head, Heart, Health, and Hands.  Leader of the Legacy is awarded to youth in the five regions in Florida, one award per area.

The Regional winners are recognized at 4-H University in July and a State winner will be selected from the Regional winners.  Regional winners will receive a plaque recognizing them during Senior awards.  The State winner will also receive a plaque and their name will be engraved and displayed with previous winners in the State 4-H Headquarters.
