4-H Volunteer Hall of Fame Back »

The South Dakota 4-H Volunteer Hall of Fame was established in 2002 as part of the 100th birthday celebration of 4-H. Its purpose is to recognize and celebrate adult volunteers in South Dakota who have dedicated themselves to making significant contributions to the development of the SDSU Extension 4-H Youth Development Program in the areas of:

  • Character
  • Citizenship
  • Leadership
  • Career accomplishment

SDSU Extension 4-H Youth Development recognizes and celebrates 4-H Volunteer Hall of Fame recipients each year at the 4-H Barbecue on Sunday evening from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m., during the South Dakota State Fair in Huron. If you have questions about the South Dakota 4-H Volunteer Hall of Fame Award, please send an email to the State 4-H Office.
