4-H Canada is soliciting a call for nominations for the 2013 4-H National Volunteer Leader of the Year Award, sponsored by CIBC. It’s time for 4-H members to show their appreciation for our outstanding leaders across the country.
4-H is about building responsible, caring and strong leaders that affect positive change in the world around them. 4-H leaders play the most significant and pivotal role in this development; and are the reason young people succeed.
To celebrate our track record of leadership, nominations are currently being accepted and will close on Wednesday, Dec. 18. The 10 provincial winners will then move forward to qualify for the national winner. The national winner will also receive a $2,000 prize.
Selection of the provincial winners are based on three 4-H member references, club involvement, community involvement, length of involvement, and how much the members have learned and developed as a result of the leader.
“The commitment and energy of our volunteer leaders is the foundation for 4-H”, said Shannon Benner, CEO of 4-H Canada.
