KELSEYVILLE – Lake County 4-H Member Bryce Hayes has been very busy this past year earning his All Star rank.

The All Star rank is the highest attainable honor in the Lake County 4-H Program.


To apply for All Star rank, a 4-H member must be 15 years of age, demonstrate leadership abilities, citizenship and community involvement, and have made a significant contribution to the 4-H Program.


As his All Star project, Bryce chose to create a cavy (Guinea Pig) proficiency for the Lake County 4-H Program.

The Lake County 4-H Proficiency program is designed to assist youth in measuring themselves against “standards of excellence.”

Each proficiency is comprised of five skill levels and should be designed to increase in scope and difficulty. The levels are: Level 1, Explorer; Level 2, Producer; Level 3, Consumer; Level 4, Leader; and Level 5, Researcher.


The proficiencies are three-fold in purpose: To provide youth opportunities to sample a broad array of experiences, measure personal progress, and become self-directed learners; to provide a standard of excellence where members are recognized for knowledge and skills they have mastered; to provide guidelines for adult volunteers to enhance and expand project content and experiences.


This is Bryce’s fifth year as a member of the Kelseyville 4-H Club. He has been active in the leadership and citizenship programs, where he has attended the Cal-Focus Leadership Conference in Sacramento and this year will be attending the Washington Focus Leadership Conference in Washington D.C. and New York City.

Bryce is also very active in the animal science and shooting sports programs within Lake County. He is currently serving as a teen leader in both the cavy project offered through Kelseyville 4-H and also in the countywide shooting sports project.


As an All Star, Bryce will serve in a leadership role at 4-H events and is an ambassador of the Lake County 4-H Program. He will visit 4-H clubs, reach out to the community, attend 4-H County Council meetings, and present the 4-H program to other agencies, and service organizations.


4-H Youth Development is a program of the University of California Cooperative Extension. For more information on the 4-H program contact U.C. Cooperative Extension, 883 Lakeport Blvd., Lakeport, 263-6838.

Nicole Gentry is Lake County's 4-H Youth Development Secretary.
