The 4-H Honor Club is a statewide organization of outstanding junior high and senior 4-H members. Honor Club members are those who have shown exceptional 4-H project work and a willingness to share what they have learned with other 4-H'ers as a junior or teen leader.
You don't have to have won a lot of awards to be an Honor Club member... just be an active participant in your local 4-H club. You don't win membership in the Honor Club, you earn it. You'll score points for Honor Club membership for everything you've done as a 4-H member. Participation is the name of the game when it comes to 4-H Honor Club!
And... Honor Club is only the first step in Tennessee's recognition program for outstanding 4-H members. Senior members can earn a spot in All Stars through their citizenship and community service work. All Stars is the second step leading to the final step of recognition. Vol State is the highest recognition a Tennessee 4-H member can earn, and it all starts with the Honor Club.
Honor Club is for junior high (6th, 7th and 8th graders) and senior (9th, 10th, 11th and 12th graders) 4-H'ers who have been active members of their local clubs. Membership is based on an application form. Anyone who can score a minimum number of points on the Tennessee 4-H Honor Club application can become a member. It's not hard. You get points for everything you do...  completing your projects, participating in events and activities, making presentations, helping other 4-H'ers, volunteering in your community...   you even get points just for joining 4-H!
