The event is held each year to not only honor the hard work and dedication of Powell County 4-H members, but to also thank the individual leaders, volunteers, and sponsors that all help to make the 4-H program possible.
4-Her of the Year Awards are given to model 4-H members. Youth who go the extra mile, who take pride in their 4-H work and involvement, and who are using the Powell County 4-H Program to help them grow and develop into extraordinary adults.
