Molly Andersen Wins 4-H Photography Award

Molly Andersen, Guttenberg received one of the 42 photography medals for an outstanding 4-H photography exhibit sponsored by The Professional Photographers of Iowa. Molly’s photograph of Mount Rushmore was exhibited in the 4-H Exhibits Building at the 2012 Iowa State Fair. Molly is a member of the Jefferson Go Hawks 4-H Club  and has been involved in the photography project area for four years.

Iowa has more than 14,000 4-H'ers enrolled in photography, among the highest in the 50 states, according to Mitchell Hoyer, program specialist for Iowa State University Extension and Outreach 4-H Youth Development.

 "It's great that sponsors recognize and encourage youth to explore a wide variety of talents through 4-H projects," Hoyer said. "4-H members will be able to experience and experiment with different media through continued support."

 "4-H learning is open to everyone," said Chuck Morris, director ISU Extension and Outreach 4-H Youth Development. "You can get involved at home all year round by calling the ISU county extension office."
