Our premier event highlighting the impact 4‑H has made in the lives of alumni and youth.

Legacy Awards Overview

The 12th annual National 4-H Council Legacy Awards will take place on September 14, 2022, at The Ritz-Carlton in Washington, D.C. The evening will highlight the impact 4-H has made in the lives of alumni and youth. From the Youth in Action Awards ceremony – which honors young leaders in our program areas of Agriculture, Civic Engagement, STEM and Healthy Living – to recognizing 4‑H professionals and supporters for their critical role in our mission, the Legacy Awards is an inspiring night of celebration.


Proceeds contribute to Council’s work to help close the opportunity gap and empower more young people through positive youth development programs. Your support allows us to provide youth, 4‑H educators and our Cooperative Extension System partners with resources they need to help kids discover their purpose, serve their communities and embrace a promising future.
