Woodbury County 4-H’er Earns Beef Project Award



AMES, Iowa – Jared Schramm of Woodbury County received a state 4-H beef project award that includes a $100 savings bond from the Mary Jo and Glen Mente Endowment and the Iowa 4-H Foundation. Schramm, 17, is the son of David and Gwyn Schramm of Moville.


During his nine years in 4-H, Schramm has completed several major projects including beef, food and nutrition, poultry and home improvement. He has received a state fair blue ribbon in home improvement. Along with this, Schramm received the Danforth Award on the county level. He has been the president, treasurer and secretary of his 4-H club. He also has served on his county 4-H council.


“In addition to the practical knowledge I have gained in completing projects, I have also refined my leadership and communication skills by being involved in 4-H,” said Schramm. “I benefit from these skills every day and will use them in my future career choice. I will also take the core value of community service involvement that I learned in 4-H to college.”


Schramm is a senior at Woodbury Central High School.
