Oneida County 4-H Leaders Association
The Oneida County 4-H Leaders Association is composed of all parents, project leaders and youth leaders who are currently enrolled in 4-H and volunteers who have completed the volunteer orientation. The organization elects individuals to the offices of President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. The officers work closely with Andrea Rippley, 4-H Program Coordinator, to provide leadership for the Association. Meetings are held monthly. November is the annual meeting for budget approval and election of officers.

Oneida County 4-H Leaders Association will pay according to the youths level of participation in the 4-H Program. Some of our criteria are:
- The number of years you have been involved in 4-H
- Participation in 4-H club or county based activities
- Attendance at one club meeting in the last 12 months
With these considerations youth can be awarded either a 25%, 50% or 75% scholarship.
Specific procedures for application deadlines must be researched and followed through the UW-Extension Oneida County office.
For international travel, a 4-H member may be granted a $1,000 award.
