Diamond Clover

The Diamond Clover program is a 6 Level achievement program, culminating in the establishment of a long-term, impactful, community service-driven project created by senior level 4-Hers.  The Diamond Clover Guideline packet is a good place to start to better understand the program. Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, and Level 4 are approved by a member's primary club leader and are recognized at the County Achievement Night.  Level 5 projects require the approval of the County Educator at both the plan and report stages, and are recognized each year at the State 4-H Gala in January.  The Level 6 - Plan and Level 6 - Proposal require approval at the club, county, and state level prior to the start of the project.  Once the Level 6 - Report is approved at all levels, the 4-Her is recognized at the State 4-H Gala.
