Candace Norman Outstanding Service Award

— Written By

The North Central District 4-H Horse Council will be sponsoring a State 4-H Horse Program perpetual award called the Candace Norman Outstanding Service Award. This honor will be given annually to a 4-H youth member and adult volunteer who get nominated. The selection process will focus strongly on the nominee who exhibits true dedication and embodies all the characteristics and morals of 4-H – A well-rounded person who strives to make the community a better place through example and leadership. We feel that this reflects the lifelong commitment Candace has made to our program and will encourage youth to continue striving for major accomplishments through setting and achieving goals. Candace was a role model for so many 4-H participants, adult volunteers, and associates, and the future of our program is dependent on more people being likewise dedicated. This award will be displayed at the Hunt Horse Complex (NC State Fairgrounds in Raleigh), where Candace spent a countless number of hours over the years working in the show office. The award will be presented at our annual State 4-H Championship Horse Show in Raleigh each July. Nominations, along with complete application, must be postmarked no later than June 30, 2015. Anyone wishing to make donations to this award can do so through the North Central District 4-H Horse Council, Attn: Nan Guldenschuh at 1563 Julian Oakley Rd; Rougemont, NC 27572. Any questions can be directed to 919.884.9338 or
