Club Awards Officer Gillie Nickeson, has posted an attendance sheet and a document to keep track of club awards on Google docs. If you attend a 4-H event, you can log in your attendance to track your participation for a club award. She will track ideas for club awards in one document that everyone can access. This is not for paper plate awards, just club awards.
To access Google docs, go to google.com and log in as: firstname.lastname@example.org. Contact Gillie or a club leader for the password. Click on "More" at the top on the black navigation bar, next to maps and photos. Then click "Drive". You will be able to see the documents.
These are some of the club awards we may present for the 2011-2012 4-H year:

We want to encourage all members to develop a 4-H Portfolio if you have not done so yet. In Addition to your Cover Page, Member Record, and Project Record(s), you should also be keeping your Agility Pyramid and other important Dog Club records in your Portfolio and bring it with you regularly to meetings. If at anytime, you would like feedback on your portfolio, you can submit it to club leader Karen Ampeh for review with feedback and comments. Our goal is for Krazy for K9s to be the Fairfax club with the most Portfolio submissions.
Here is another good link about 4-H projects:
A "project" is simply a topic that you can explore. On the following project pages, you'll find descriptions and resources on a wide variety of major topics . . . from art to woodworking, from computers to rabbits, from clothing to small engines.
Select a project and you'll usually find:
As you explore, 4-H thinks you'll learn more than just subject matter. You'll learn "life" skills, too. These are valuable skills, such as understanding yourself, communicating and working with others, problem solving and decision making . . . skills that you can use the rest of your life.
The Flash Memorial Award
Awarded to the highest scoring Fairfax County Krazy for K9s Dog Training Club dog-handler team in the Gamblers Class at the annual Fairfax County 4-H Fair and Frying Pan Farm Park Show Dog Exhibit. The judge will determine the winner from among the top-scoring dog-handler teams in each division. The selection of the winner will be based upon overall accuracy, speed (in accordance to dog's height), and sportsmanship. In two brief years, Flash, a border terrier owned by the Quigley family, warmed the hearts of the 4-H Krazy for K9s Club (then Perfect Pets Club). Flash particularly excelled in agility. In memory of her spirit, Tundra and Steve Sung offer the Flash Memorial Agility Award. Each winner will have their name inscribed on a perpetual plaque.
