National Partner in 4-H Citations and Crested Clover Awards

National Partners in 4-H Citations were initially presented to prominent men and women as Extension's highest honor for individual service to 4-H, starting in the 1940s. The Crested Clover Award, presented from 1961-1978, was the highest honor given by the Cooperative Extension Service in recognition of service to 4-H by corporations, organizations, associations and other groups.

Around 1978, the two awards were combined with the Partner in 4-H Awards being issued to both individuals and corporations or associations. The Partner in 4-H Awards program ended in 1993.

Presentations were normally made at appropriate events during the year by a representative of the Extension Administrator's Office, U.S. Departmelnt of Agriculture.

Although this may not be a complete listing of the recipients of these two special awards, it demonstrates the wide range of those who have received the award.
