4-H Foundation Important Volunteer of the Year Award

Every April, the 4-H Foundation presents an Important Volunteer of the Year (IVY) Award to an individual who has gone above and beyond to support Arapahoe County 4-H. Nominations may be made by anyone in the 4-H community.

Nominees may be 4-H leaders, members of the Fair committee involved with 4-H exhibits, Foundation members, or members of an advisory group involved with 4-H. Nominees should be highly involved with 4-H club activities, and volunteerism in county, district, state and national programs is also considered. Nominations are due each February and should be submitted to the 4-H Office.
