Save the Date: 12/21/2021 Achievement Record Workshop 10:00am-Noon

We want to help all Williams County Youth complete their Ohio Achievment Record to give them the best possible chances of being awarded trips, scholarships and other opportunities at the local and state levels. Make plans to attend this virtual workshop on Tuesday, December 21 from 10:00am-Noon. Feel free to have a printed copy of the Ohio Achievement Record next to you, notes of your 4-H involvment and/or a laptop (if that's how you roll) along with any questions you may have. This will be a workshop to help get your creative juices going about what to write in each section, so you'll want to be sure to take notes as we'll be helping you through this process. Not 14 years old yet? No worries--you're still invited to come so that as you build your 4-H resume, you'll be ahead of the game with accurately completing the sections. All ages are welcome to attend. Email Stacey at perry.1735@osu.edu to RSVP today.

2022 Ohio Achievement Record Application (Due 1/7/2022) 

There are a variety of trips, awards and opportunities available to youth who are age 14 (as of January 1, of current year). In order to be considered for many of them, youth need to complete the Ohio Achievement Record. Think of this form as a "4-H Resume" which highlights the various ways youth have been active and involved throughout the 4-H program. Although youth need to be 14 in to apply for several of these opportunities, it is encouraged that youth begin recording their involvement starting their first year in 4-H. If youth update this form at the conclusion of each 4-H year, it makes completing this form much less cumbersome and time-consuming.
