Member Evaluation (ME) Process

Thank you for your interest in sharing your 4-H accomplishments and lessons learned through Ashland County! This is a great opportunity to practice the skill of communicating personal growth achieved throughout the year. This Member Evaluation Form is a way to save and refer to your important experiences. Keep this form as you continue your 4-H journey and submit it with updates for different applications in the future!

The Ashland County Member Evaluation process is also an opportunity for local youth to earn a travel scholarship by participating in an application and interview; this is most members’ first time in an official interview!

Record Book Activities

As a 4-Her, you do so many great things that are important to acknowledge! That is one reason why 4-H has a record keeping process – to make sure that youth remember their achievements, growth, and lessons for the future, and others can know, too! Experiential learning within 4-H programs helps the youth complete projects AND gain skills to use in life! The forms here are tools to express your experiences.

T-Shirt Design Contest

Show off your creativity and community! Ashland County 4-H Clubs, Leaders, and Members are invited to design an image that expresses what our local 4-H team means to them.

There will be multiple awards, with the first place winning design being on this 4-H year’s T-Shirt. Voting will take place after the due date: October 13, 2023.

For contest information and instructions, please see the poster below:

Spring Art Contest

The annual Spring Art Contest is a fun chance for 4-H Youth to test their art skills and practice an art medium they may have never tried. Each year, the Leaders Association chooses a unique medium and asks local artists to provide feedback and choose winners in each age category. Check out this year’s Spring Art Contest, and past years, here.
