The Emerald Award is the highest honor for Kentucky 4-H’s Achievement Program, which includes non-competitive and competitive levels. To qualify for the Emerald Award, 4-H’ers must be at least a sophomore in high school, have reached non-competitive Level V and be chosen as one of the top 10 Gold Award winners for the current year or a past years’ Gold Award recipient. The Gold Award is a competitive level of the Achievement Program that requires 4-H’ers to work with stakeholders in their community to identify a community issue and develop a solution.

Each winner will receive an all-expense-paid trip to the National 4-H Conference in Washington, D.C. and $1,000 college scholarship. Congratulations Wyatt, Evan, Lilli, and Corey – we know you are destined to do great things!
