4-H State Award Program

Llama has been added to the 4-H State Award Program and is sponsored by the Michigan Lama Association!

The Michigan State 4-H Awards Program is an opportunity for 4-Hers aged 13 and up, with three or more years of experience in 4-H, to meet new friends, gain leadership skills, perfect interviewing skills, improve writing skills, build self-esteem, and compete for recognitions in more than 30 project areas including llamas.

The Michigan State 4-H Awards Program includes county, regional, and state level competition.  Awards program participants submit completed individual or group awards application forms to their county MSU Extension staff by March 3. The applications are evaluated on the county level and submitted to regional competition. Regional winners are selected by early April.  Regional winners then compete for state honors.

State winners are selected during the 4-H Awards Assembly, held at MSU during 4-H Exploration Days in June. Selection is based on the awards application and an interview. Winners are announced at the 4-H Awards Celebration, which is held on the Thursday night of 4-H Exploration Days.

Regional winners in the Michigan 4-H Awards Program receive certificates of accomplishment. State winners receive $100 cash awards and plaques. The State 4-H Awards Program is a great way to meet others from across the state who are active in the same 4-H 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.
