Youth in Tehama County
Youth increase their confidence, learn to make decisions, learn to work as a team, and realize that they can make a difference in their community, which is why the Tehama County 4-H Outstanding Service Award was introduced in 2015. Our first ever award goes to Makaylie Cook of Westside 4-H Club for her dedication to the community.
