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.
