4H from page 12

The annual Roosevelt County 4-H Achievement Day was held on Sunday, Sept. 22, at the Froid Community Center. Ice cream sundaes were served by the Up-N-Atom 4-H Club.

Ann Ronning, emcee and the Roosevelt County Extension agent, began the program by recognizing 4-H members and leaders with their years of service awards. Roosevelt County Senior Ambassador Elizabeth Hendrickson and Junior Ambassador Renee Oelkers presented members with their certificates, pins and seals.

Each year, 4-H’ers are required to turn their record books into the Extension office. The record books are then reviewed for completeness and 4-H’ers are nominated for county and special awards in the various project areas.

Specialty carcass awards were presented. Symbol of Excellence (swine) awards were given to Paytyn Wilson of the Tumbleweed 4-H Club and Halle Vareberg of the Up-N-Atom 4-H Club.  Coltin Thompson of the Tumbleweed 4-H Club received a Steer of Merit award. Brett Stentoft of the Up-N-Atom 4-H Club received a Certified Lamb award. 

Overall market animal project awards were also presented. First-place in swine was Brett Stentoft of the Up-N-Atom 4-H Club.  Second went to Halle Vareberg of the Up-N-Atom 4-H Club. First-place in beef went to Coltin Thompson of the Tumbleweed 4-H club. There was a tie for second between McKade Mahlen of the Tumbleweed 4-H Club and Hunter Bowker of the Tumbleweed 4-H Club. First-place in sheep was Brett Stentoft of the Up-N-Atom 4-H Club.  Second was Trinity Whitmus of the Frontier 4-H Club. This award takes into account the animal’s live placing in the show ring, its average daily gain and carcass placing.

The winner of the 4-H license plate drawing was Jeremy Breuer of the Up-N-Atom 4-H Club.   

The Outstanding Club Secretary award was presented to Renee Oelkers of the Missouri River Rats 4-H Club.
