The goal of the Colorado 4-H Hall of Fame is to highlight 4-H alumni from Colorado and other states who have made significant impacts in Colorado. Nominations are submitted by March 1 of each year to the state 4-H office from the county Extension office where the nominee was a 4-H member or the county in which they currently reside. All nominations are reviewed and recommendations are made to the State 4-H Program leader, who makes the final determination.
