Each year, GAE4-HA members are eligible to apply for GAE4-HA and NAE4-HA awards. The awards process is coordinated by the Member Recognition Committee.  Many GAE4-HA awards have district and/or state winners.  The NAE4-HA state award winners will advance to NAE4-HA Southern Region judging, with those winners advancing to be judged at the national level.
