April. Regional winners then compete for state honors.
State winners are selected during the 4-H Awards Assembly,
MSU during 4-H Exploration Days in June. Selection
is based on the
awards application and an interview. Winners

Regional winners in the Michigan 4-H Awards Program receive
certificates of accomplishment. State winners receive $100 cash

projects. Encourage your 4-Hers to participate in the future!

The MLA Scholarship
In fall of 2003, the MLA board approved the development of an annual
scholarship program. The intent of this award is to help members and
their families offset a portion of educational expenses for
vocational and academic training beyond high school. This program is
funded through the Llamfest silent auction and will be administered
by the MLA board or its appointed agency.
The scholarship consists of two $1,000 scholarships given to the student(s)
chosen by a selection committee determined by the MLA board. It will
be presented at the spring membership meeting or in conjunction with
the Lamafest Show.
Once awarded, the scholarship would be renewable by application for
any year a student attends an institution granting skill
certification, associate, undergraduate or graduate degrees. A
student would be eligible to renew the scholarship a maximum of
three times during his/her academic career.
The number of scholarship awards and/or renewals will be determined
annually. This determination will be made by the board or its
appointed agency based on the funds available, the number of
applicants and the selection process.
