Awards and Recognition for Partners

Customizable Certificates of Appreciation

One of the ways we can thank community leaders and supporters for their efforts, advocacy, service or support is through awards and recognitions. While some awards, like the annual Leaders Honor Roll (LHR), honor community leaders and individuals, other awards are available to honor years of support, council members stepping off council terms or companies/organizations who have supported MU Extension and 4-H.

We have created “fillable” templates with the university name and our newest logos, for use by MU Extension offices in the counties. The first two are explained below, and are ready for use. The third (Leaders Honor Roll), are completed through the submission process each fall to the Strategic Partnership office. However, for last minute needs, there is also a template supplied here as well.

(Please note that to complete a certificate’s fillable fields and not see the comment markers, you must save and rename the file, and then reopen it in Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader Adobe PDF. Open right click, and select “save as” (name), and then open using Acrobat. The comment markers won’t print on your certificate — they simply serve as prompts for what to fill in there.)

Leaders Honor Roll

Designed for honoring MU Extension and Engagement’s volunteers and those who champion extension

The Leaders Honor Roll is a traditional award that takes place each fall to honor two volunteer leaders (individuals or couples) who deserve recognition, as determined by MU Extension faculty and staff in each county.

The Historic Master List of all past honorees includes tabs for each county and a color code as follows:

  • Red — Given to organizations or business that shouldn’t have been.
  • Grey — No nominations.
  • Yellow — Missing information.
  • Orange — More than two nominations were made in a given year.

See the Leaders Honor Roll box for links to criteria, certificates and the Historic Master List.
