Two graduating Seniors were presented with Joachim 4-H Awards; next week I will share pictures and an article so you can see who are our graduating seniors. To be eligible, they had to have been actively enrolled and active in 4-H during their high school career and submit a statement explaining how many years they were enrolled in 4-H, what 4-H taught them, how they plan to use what they learned and why others should join 4-H.

4-H offers many opportunities for members to grow and prepare for their future – and there are scholarship and awards available to assist them with their post high school further education opportunities.
