What is a 4-H Keystone Recognition Form?
A Keystone Recognition Form (KRF) is what you complete in order to be recognized on the County level for the great project work you are doing all year long.
Why should I complete one of these?
By completing this form, you will be competing against other York County 4-H members who took the same projects you did. The forms will be judged and one member will be named as the Outstanding Member in each project area.
Where do I get a form?
The forms are located on our website, available at the 4-H office, and you can pick up one at the 4-H Center in the metal file boxes in the main hallways. Instructions and requirements can be found there, too.
Who should complete a form?
Everyone! Cloverbuds can complete an activity form; there is a KRF for Junior members (ages 8-13, 4-H age) and a Senior Form for members 14-18 (4-H age).
