AMES, Iowa -- A $2,000 scholarship has been awarded to a Washington County student. Allison Moeller, Keota, received a Hills Bank 4-H Scholarship sponsored by Hills Bank and Trust Company.
The Hills Bank 4-H Scholarship is awarded to as many as 20 students each year.

Afterward, they receive $500 per semester for two years. The scholarship may be used at any of Iowa's accredited universities, colleges or community colleges.
"As a leader, I try hard to be a positive role model in all that I do," Moeller, the daughter of David and Kris Moeller, said.
Moeller has been involved in several activities including 4-H, band, drama and choir. She was also a member of SADD, National Honor Society and United Presbyterian Church Hi club. She participated in Christ in Others Teen Team, physics’ Olympics and was the 2006 Washington County Fair Queen.
