Buena Vista County 4-H'er Earns Dairy Project Award


AMES, Iowa -- Adam Glienke of Buena Vista County received a state 4-H dairy project award that includes a $100 savings bond from the Iowa 4-H Foundation. Glienke, 16, is the son of Brian and Cindy Glienke of Aurelia.


During his seven years of 4-H involvement, Glienke has completed several major projects including dairy, leadership, citizenship, beef and food and nutrition.  He has served his local 4-H club as president, vice president, secretary/reporter and treasurer. Glienke has served on his County and Area 4-H Councils and the Buena Vista County Executive 4-H Committee.  Glienke has also received a senior project award in dairy and leadership. He has also received the "I Dare You" award and the Rafa Worthan 4-H award.  Glienke has participated in the Citizenship Washington Focus trip to Washington D.C. and the Iowa 4-H Youth Conference/Animal Science Roundup in Ames, Iowa. 


"Through 4-H, I have gained many life skills that I never expected," said Glienke.  "I have gained skills in record keeping, communication, leadership and citizenship and have gained confidence in my public speaking through 4-H.  My future plans include going to college to learn more about the dairy industry and I feel 4-H has given me a head start."


Glienke is a junior at Aurelia High School.
