Clinton Zeigler of Vegreville is the newest member of the 4-H Alberta Hall of Fame in recognition of his contribution to youth mentorship.

Mr. Ziegler first joined 4-H as a beef club member in 1961. For the past 25 years, he has served as a leader and volunteer at the club, district, regional and provincial 4-H levels. He has also been actively involved in his community through the Boy Scouts, hockey, Alberta Wheat Pool, local fire association and his church.

“The 4-H program relies on dedicated volunteers who selflessly give of their time to mentor and guide our youth in learning new skills and growing as future leaders. Mr. Ziegler’s strong sense of community and commitment to helping young people exemplify the exceptional qualities that Hall of Fame recipients are well-known for.”
Verlyn Olson, Minister, Agriculture and Rural Development

The 4-H Alberta Hall of Fame has inducted 80 members since 1971.

Candidates are nominated by peers and leaders from local 4-H organizations and are evaluated based on their personal qualities, demonstrated leadership, community references and contributions to 4-H, agriculture and rural life. The selection committee includes representatives of the 4-H Council of Alberta, the 4-H Foundation of Alberta and Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development.

November 6 is “Show Your 4-H Colours Day,” the official kickoff to National 4-H Month.

Established in 1917, 4-H Alberta is the largest youth organization in the province with more than 250,000 alumni.

4-H Canada is currently celebrating its 100th anniversary.
