Applications will be accepted until May 31. To be eligible, a 4-H member must be enrolled in the 4-H Garden or 4-H Floriculture project a minimum of five years, including the current year.

Applicants must complete project requirements for the current year and submit project paperwork and record sheets to their 4-H club leader prior to project judging.
