James W. Crowley Leadership Award

The 4-H Dairy Leadership Award provides recognition to youth who have excelled in their dairy project. As of 1989, the James W. Crowley Dairy Management and Extension Fund assumed sponsorship of this award. We are pleased to name the award in honor and memory of James W. Crowley, longtime Extension Dairy Specialist and strong supporter of dairy youth project work. One (1) county level award, including a medallion, will be presented annually to an outstanding 4-H Dairy Project member. Youth may only win the Crowley Leadership Award once. The state level award program is open to any youth who meet the criteria and fill out the application, including but not limited to the county award winner.
