The 4-H motto is “To Make the Best Better,” and for many of our graduating seniors in the 4-H Youth Development program, they have done just that—strive to make their best better by volunteering in their communities, participating in various leadership opportunities, and becoming better citizens thanks to their involvement in 4-H. We are greatly appreciative and proud of our graduating seniors for their hard work and dedication to helping their clubs, community, country, and world.
One way to recognize these outstanding youth is through the 4-H Honor Cord program and 4-H Senior Jacket Program.
4-H Honor Cord Program – This is a program established by Louisiana 4-H Foundation to recognize graduating seniors for their involvement in 4-H during their high school careers. In order to receive the 4-H Honor Cord, which is a green and white (4-H colors) cord to be worn at graduation, graduating seniors must meet the following requirements:
4-H Honor Cords for St. Charles Parish 4-H members will be presented at 4-H Achievement Day in the spring.
