In November, 4-H clubs from the Johnson County area had an achievement celebration banquet. The 4-H clubs celebrated all the hard work and achievements members did this past year. One of the achievements is winning a Kansas Award Portfolio (KAP) at county. The KAP is a book that 4-Her’s turn in to be judged, telling of all they have done in a specific project. 4-Her’s can do KAPs in projects like Reading, Fiber Arts, Cattle, Visual Arts, Leadership, Woodworking, and Sheep and so on. To win a KAP, you must do a lot of leadership and citizenship in the project. Once the KAPs are announced as winners, they move on to regionals, if they win regionals, then they will be judged at state. If the KAP wins at state, the 4-H’er will be recognized at the Emerald Circle Banquet, and will receive a scholarship to go to Atlanta for Congress. Congress is a convention for 4-H’ers to grow in leadership, citizenship, and also to know other 4-H’ers from around the nation. Congress is the following Friday after Thanksgiving. Congratulations to all the winners at county of the KAP.
