Winners are determined by 4-H advisors and volunteers. 4-H involvement accounts for 50 percent of the decision. The other half considers the individual’s experiences in other groups and activities, academic accomplishments and potential for success.

Ohio Valley Bank, established in 1872 and based in Gallipolis, operates 19 offices throughout southern Ohio and western West Virginia, in each of the counties in which 4-H scholars are named.
