    The Leaf River Soaring Eagles 4-H club in Ogle County was recently honored for its achievements with a statewide Excel Club Award.

    Recognition and awards are an essential part of 4-H. Recognition encourages young people and increases their interest in opportunities as they become more capable young adults.

    Leaf River Soaring Eagles 4-H Club was honored with a Community Service Excel Club Award due to a demonstrated focus on their 4-H club’s work in service to and for others, emphasizing youth leadership in planning and implementing the service work.

    The Illinois 4-H Recognition program focuses on three areas of recognition: Engage, Experience, and Excel. Clubs that EXCEL in their work can compete for state awards. Congratulations to the Leaf River Soaring Eagles 4-H Club for an outstanding year.
