AMES, Iowa -- A $1,000 scholarship has been awarded to a Jackson County 4-H member. Dustin Schau, Monmouth, has received a Theisen Home/Farm/Auto 4-H Scholarship sponsored by Theisen Supply, Inc.
Schau, a nine-year 4-H member, is the son of Jerry and Cindy Schau. He has participated most actively in the project areas of livestock, home improvement and woodworking. On the county level, he has received awards for clothing selection, livestock showmanship and reserved champion swine showmanship. He served as president and vice-president of his 4-H club. He was also a member of his county 4-H council.
“4-H has shown me how to not only show animals and indoor exhibits, but how to conserve and appreciate what I have,” Schau said. “I want to help protect our environment and resources for future generations, so they may enjoy nature, 4-H and everything else just as I have.”
Schau is a graduate of Maquoketa Community High School and plans to major in agricultural engineering at Iowa State University.
In Iowa, the 4-H program is a part of Iowa State University Extension and headquartered on the ISU campus in Ames. For more information about 4-H, how to get involved, or how to apply for a 4-H scholarship contact the local county office of ISU Extension.
