A gold medallion with the words "State Winner - Senior Level I" and a 4-H emblem superimposed over an outline of the state is imbedded in the pyramid. The award symbolizes 4-H'ers quest to explore new horizons as they develop life skills. Various donors sponsor the Horizon Award.
  2. Level I Scholarships - Each Level I state winner has the opportunity to receive a $500 college scholarship provided by the Herbert College of Agriculture at UTK; UTM College of Agriculture and Applied Sciences; or the UTK College of Education, Health and Human Sciences. These scholarship may be collected upon the successful completion of a semester of college work in the departments of Child and Family Studies or Nutrition in the College of Education, Health and Human Sciences at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville; the College of Agriculture Sciences and Natural Resources at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville; or in the departments of Agriculture and Natural Resources or Family and Consumer Sciences in the College of Agriculture and Applied Science at the University of Tennessee at Martin.

It is currently held in Atlanta, Georgia.
  4. Lee Medallion - The Lee Medallion is presented to all Level II winners in project competition. The medallion is circular in shape.
