Kyle Mason Samson Scholarship

The Kyle Mason Samson Scholarship application is now available for download. This $750 scholarship is open to Jackson County 4-H Members in their senior year of high school or current college students. The scholarship application is due March 15th.

County Awards

We are excited to announce an update to our county awards process! Forms are now available for download on the County Awards tab at the top of our page.

 Any member that chooses to apply for an award will need a Registered 4-H Leader to nominate/ sponsor them. The leader does not need to do anything other than allow the member to put their name on the application, indicating they support the application.

The application process:

A leader encourages a member to apply or the member decides to apply and finds a leader to support the application.

Under the County Awards Tab, you will find a  PDF Awards Application. Download this application, fill it out, and print the completed application.

All printed applications are due to the Extension Office (1715 Lansing Ave, Ste 257 Jackson, MI 49202) by 5:00pm Friday February 8th.

A committee will meet to review applications and select award winners. The awards ceremony date will be selected at this meeting. Winners will be notified and invited to the ceremony.

We have uploaded a few documents to help you with the process. The first is a 5 year award winner list. This will help leaders know who has already won the award. We have also added the Awards Description document to help explain what some of the awards are. The final document you will find is the Member Participation Record. This is an optional word document that members can use to track participation over the years to help them with future applications.
