4-H encourages young people to set and achieve their goals. To that end, the Kentucky 4-H Achievement Program was created to reward ambitious and accomplished young people throughout the state. In the highly competitive 4-H Achievement Program, young people receive recognition and prizes for their accomplishments in 4-H and their community. 4-H’ers can start accumulating points as soon as they start 4-H and begin earning recognition by ten years of age. Each district can submit ten applicants for the gold award. Of the 70 statewide applicants, 30 are selected. The competitive program consists of a 40% application score and a 60% panel interview portion. After careful review from all the judges, this year’s 30 winners have been announced. Metcalfe County 4-H member Colton Huffman was among those winners. Colton is a Sophomore at Metcalfe County High School.
