During her eight years in 4-H, Broulik has completed several major projects including beef, dog, horse, food and nutrition and tractor restoration. She has received a state award in beef showmanship. Along with this, Broulik received many top awards at the county-level such as all-around beef exhibitor, leadership record book award and dog best of show.

She also has served on her county, area and state 4-H councils, participated in the Iowa 4-H Youth Conference and was a host and visitor in the 4-H Exchange Program.
