Of all that can be gained in 4-H work, none is more prestigious that of the Kansas 4-H Key Award. To earn the Key Award, candidates must be 16 years of age and must be enrolled in the leadership project for the past four years.
Each nominee for the 4-H Key Award must have demonstrated outstanding contributions in leadership, citizenship, community service, demonstrations, judging and the holding of club and county offices. In simple terms, it recognizes 4-H members who have lived up to the high ideals expressed by the 4-H Club Pledge.
The Farm Credit Associations of Kansas are sponsors of the state award.
