The Key Award

The Kansas Key Award is one of the highest honors awarded to 4-H members across Kansas. As a 4-H award, the applicant needs to highlight 4-H related events, activities and achievements accomplished within the 4-H club, county/district, region or state.

Club Seal Application

A seal is awarded to a 4-H Club each participation year requirements for a seal are met. The seals, ranked in ascending order of difficulty, are: white, red, blue, and purple. Your 4-H Club may try for any seal without regard to the seals previously received. If a club does not meet all club requirements then a participation seal is awarded for that year.
