(This is to replace the achievement award seals, Right on Target Award and Focus Area Contest) NEW in 2020
An individual or a group, up to three youth/young adults, are challenged to put together an event or project within their Subordinate, Pomona, or State Grange that aligns with one of the six pillars of G.R.A.N.G.E Youth and track that project throughout the events time frame. The event or project must take place between October 1 and September 30th. Once the event or project has concluded (and throughout) youth will put together a project portfolio to show their beginning, during, and end progress. Youth will have to complete a planning guide summary to be included in their portfolio.
The Pillar Project is to hone in on the passions, creativity and leadership abilities of Grange Youth and Young Adults. The pillars are meant to be vague because, like many Granges, everything we do is unique and fits for our State, Pomona and Subordinate Granges needs. The pillars serve as the six main things that we should be striving to live by as G.R.A.N.G.E. youth.
A Planning Guide Summary will need to be submitted to the National Youth Director by September 1. Portfolios will need to be brought to National Session by State Masters or State Youth directors by the opening of session to be put on display in the showcase.
