What is a Kings County All-Star?

The Kings County All Star program is a source of learning leadership, citizenship, and life skills. The duties and activities involved in the All Star program teaches all three skills and provide older members with an outlet for putting the skills they have learned to good use. The best and brightest 4-Hers are selected to represent the county. These are members who have excelled in their own projects, have served their county program in other ways, and have been deemed worthy to represent their fellow 4-Hers.

A Kings County 4-H All Star is the highest star rank that can be achieved at the county level. An All Star has shown and continues to display the following criteria:

  •  Enthusiasm and commitment to the 4-H program
  • Has completed all the requirements
  • Involved in 4-H County and Out-of-County events
  • Demonstrated outstanding leadership skills
  • Active in their club
  • A positive role model for all 4-H members
  • Enjoys public speaking

The 4-H members that are chosen to be All Stars have shown exemplary accomplishments in the 4-H Program and the community.

Why Does 4-H Have All Stars?

The Kings County 4-H All Star program is a source of leadership development. The best and brightest 4-Hers are selected to represent the county. These are members who have excelled in their own projects, have served their county program in other ways, and have been deemed worthy to represent their fellow 4-Hers. The All Star rank recognizes members’ leadership abilities, but it is also a working honor. Besides their regular projects and activities, All Stars are required to assist with county events, develop an All Star projects, and reflect positively for the program. This provides older 4-Hers with something to strive for and keeps high school-aged members in the program, providing leaders for younger members and, in turn, someone for younger members to look up to. All of this adds up to a unique leadership experience special to the 4-H youth development program.
