Four Leaf Clover Foundation encourages members to stay in 4-H all through high school by awarding scholarships for continued education – either college or vocational school. Above, Carly, a County All-Star and member of Gold Coast 4-H, accepts a $2000 scholarship from Four Leaf Clover Foundation director LuAnn Ames. Other 2017 scholarship winners were Brynn from Lucky Clover 4-H and Elizabeth from Playa del Sur 4-H.  2018 winners were Allyson Dias and  Kathleen Merrill, both of Vineyard 4-H and Anna Scheck of Lucky Clover 4-H.

High school seniors are encouraged to apply for a scholarship of up to $2000. Multiple scholarships awards are made based on active 4-H participation with emphasis on leadership, citizenship, community service and service learning accomplishments.
