The Legacy Awards is an evening to celebrate Iowa 4-H and to recognize those who have made a significant impact on the program. We honor four outstanding supporters of the Iowa 4-H program during an awards ceremony. The night starts with a reception featuring interactive exhibits from Iowa 4-H'ers. A dinner and dessert auction follow. The dessert auction raised over $47,000 in 2019. The evening ends with the awards presentation recognizing an Outstanding 4-H Alum, Corporate Partner, Contributing Youth and Individual Supporter. Money raised goes to continue support for Iowa 4-H’ers via the Iowa 4-H Foundation. The Iowa 4-H Foundation provides funds for many of the opportunities – events, programs and activities – that allow young people to experience the benefits of 4-H. These programs help young people enhance their ability to use critical thinking, leadership, communication, and social skills.
