All-star, platinum, gold, silver, or bronze stars in front. Members may "cascade" the stars, although some counties request that members only wear their current star. Behind the stars are placed the junior/teen leader emblems and the Hi 4-H patch (in that order).
Right side of hat:
A year stripe and year pin is earned for each year completed in 4-H.
Junior and primary members (8th grade and below) wear a white stripe on green background for that year.
Junior leaders (6th, 7th, 8th grades) wear a gold stripe on green background for that year.
Senior members (9th grade and up) wear a green stripe with a white background for that year.
Teen leaders (9th grade and up) wear a gold stripe on white background for that year.
All-stars wear a purple stripe on white background (in many counties) for that year.
Year pins are fastened to the hat above the stripe, starting with the first year pins next to the 4-H clover. The 100% attendance pin, if earned, should be fastened to the hat below the stripe of the year that the pin was earned.
Either side -
Medals may be worn on either side of the hat, but placing them on the left is recommended.
Note - No other pin or ribbon should be worn on the hat other than 4-H related items. The hat should reflect the dignity of the 4-H Youth Development program. Some items that should not be worn on the hat include buttons, fair medals, convention badges or other regalia.
