Adair County 4-H’er Earns Clothing Project Award



AMES, Iowa – Katrina Schulteis of Adair County received a state 4-H clothing project award that includes a $100 savings bond from the Mary Jo and Glen Mente Endowment and the Iowa 4-H Foundation. Schulteis, 17, is the daughter of Gary and Karen Schulteis of Greenfield.


During her eight years in 4-H, Schulteis has completed several major projects including clothing, food and nutrition, home improvement, leadership and rabbit. She has been in the top 10 percent of the state fair clothing event for two years. Along with this, Schulteis received many top awards at the county level in clothing, home improvement and food and nutrition. She also has been the president and treasurer of her 4-H club. Schulteis has served on her county and state 4-H councils and has participated in the Iowa 4-H Youth Conference.


“Through 4-H I have gained confidence by speaking and modeling in front of audiences,” said Schulteis. “I have also learned about resumes, interviewing and how to think on my feet. With the skills and knowledge I have gained in clothing and home improvement, along with art classes I have taken in school I have chosen to study the field of graphic design in collge.”


Schulteis is a senior at Nodaway Valley High School.
