AMES, Iowa – Megan Logan of Woodbury County has been selected to represent Iowa at the National 4-H Congress in Atlanta, Ga. Nov. 23-27. She is sponsored by the Iowa Farm Bureau Life Charitable Trust and the Iowa 4-H Foundation Board Endowment. Logan, 16, is the daughter of Greg and Laurrie Logan of Sioux City.

 

Logan will join 22 other youth from Iowa at the leadership conference, entitled "Accept the Challenge." Iowa's Congress delegates are selected through interviews and evaluation of support materials. Logan, a junior at North High School, was chosen for her leadership, citizenship and overall achievement in the 4-H program. 

 

During her eight years in 4-H, Logan has completed several major projects including communication, home improvement, personal development, child development and food and nutrition. At the state level, she has received a state 4-H dog project award and is a member of the Iowa 4-H Technology Team. Along with these, Logan received top honors at the county level such as the spirit of 4-H award, project awards and membership on the Northwest Area Technology Team. She has been the president, vice president, treasurer and historian of her 4-H club. She has served on her county 4-H council and also has been a participant at the Iowa 4-H Youth Conference.

 

“4-H has helped me grow and shine,” said Logan. “It’s helped me realize my talents and improve on my weaknesses. Every experience I’ve had through 4-H has been positive and I don’t want to imagine my life without it.”
