During her nine years in 4-H, Tenold has completed several major projects including beef, citizenship, communication, leadership and horse. She has received many state 4-H awards including state horse and citizenship project awards and the Russ Brannen Memorial Beef 4-H Scholarship. Along with these, Tenold received many top awards at the county level such as beef, citizenship, leadership and senior awards. She also has been the vice president of her 4-H club.
