Iowa 4-H’ers Earn 2012 State 4-H Project Awards

AMES, Iowa -- The following Iowa 4-H’ers have earned 2012 state 4-H project awards. A state 4-H project award is the highest achievement 4-H’ers can receive in 4-H Youth Development project work through Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. Each student also received a $100 savings bond from the Mary Jo and Glen Mente Endowment and the Iowa 4-H Foundation.

Brenda Allen, a 4-H youth development specialist with ISU Extension and Outreach, said these awards indicate that the youths not only have mastered skills in that particular area, but also have shared their knowledge through presentations, workshops or helping others. In addition, 4-H project award winners must convey what they’ve gained in their project through a rigorous state application and interview process.

The state 4-H project award recipients were recognized during the Iowa 4-H Youth Conference June 28. Follow the links below for information about the recipients by county:
