Important Educational Experience Updates for Adams County 4-H Youth

Over the past few years 4-H Educational Experiences have had some changes.  Educational experiences are back and the Adams County Award Committee has been meeting to ensure our youth get as much support as possible to go on educational experiences- Below are some important updates to help you be in the know of educational experiences!

The Awards Committee goal is to support as many youth as possible to provide them opportunities to attend these educational experiences.

Important Updates:

  • These opportunities will be sent from the Wisconsin 4-H state office to the email you have registered with 4-H Online. If you do not have an email you regularly use, you may miss these emails. Watch for these emails and apply for the educational experiences you would like to go on.
  • Each September we are asking all youth to complete a survey for those interested in educational experiences and the trip they are interested in. This will help the Awards Committee budget for all of the youth planning to go on educational experiences.  You can still apply for educational experiences if you did not complete the survey, however communicate with Evan Henthorne, the 4-H Youth Educator as soon as you know you would like to attend a trip so the committee can plan for the expense.
  • In order to get reimbursed for Educational Experiences youth must complete the Member Evaluation (ME) form 
  • Youth have the opportunity to receive 75% of their trip paid for by Adams County Leaders Association. To receive this 75% the following needs to occur.
    • You will apply for the trip online.
    • An interview will be set up for you with the committee or guest judges. Successful completion of this and you will be awarded 65% of the cost of the trip.
    • You will pay 35% of your trip to Adams County 4-H, deadline for paying this will depend on when your trip is.
    • You have the opportunity to still earn another 10% by sharing about your trip at two events for a total of 75%.
      • Enter an exhibit at the Adams County Fair sharing about your trip – 5% can be earned back by completing this.
      • Present your trip at the Fall 4-H Awards Banquet – 5% can be earned back by completing this.
    • Fill out a 10% Trip Reimbursement Form to be reimbursed. This can only be filled out one time per trip. Click here for a fillable Trip Reimbursement Form.
  • If you do not go on the trip for any reason you must reimburse the Leaders Association for 100% of the cost of the trip or their financial loss of what they already paid. If allowed by the organizers of the trip you may find someone to take your place. It will then be your responsibility to work out the financial agreement with your replacement.

If you have any questions contact Evan Henthorne, 4-H Youth Educator and he will be able to direct you in the right direction.
