The Florida 4-H Hall of Fame was established in 2002 to recognize outstanding individual contributors to the 4-H program. Established during the national 4-H program’s centennial year, one hundred members were inducted into the Florida 4-H Hall of Fame. Inductees include outstanding 4-H alumni, volunteers, emeritus extension agents, program leaders, and supporters. An additional four to five members are inducted each year. 


The Hall of Fame Committee assesses nominations for induction on the following four areas:

  • Citizenship as exemplified by participation in civic, community, state, regional and national public service related activities evidencing concern for the welfare of others, especially as they relate to 4-H.
  • Leadership as exemplified by qualities of leadership and acceptance of leadership responsibilities in civic, community, professional and business related activities that directly or indirectly benefit 4-H.
  • Career Accomplishments as exemplified by accomplishments and success in his/her chosen career and as a mentor or role model.
  • Character as exemplified by evidence of the influence of 4-H involvement (if a 4-H alumni or volunteer) in the nominee's life and/or his or her commitment to 4-H. 

Nominations for 2023 accepted now through January 31, 2023.
