From the University of Wisconsin-Madison Extension Division:
Katelyn Hannah of Salem was selected as this year’s Kenosha County Wisconsin 4-H Key Award recipient.
The prestigious Key Award, one of the highest accolades a 4-H member can receive, honors a select group of 4-H participants each year. The youth who receive this award are those who have demonstrated consistent growth in their commitment to 4-H, developed and applied their leadership skills, and actively participated in their club and community.
According to Jen Reese, Youth Development Educator for Kenosha 4-H County, this year’s recipient exemplifies the goals and values of the Wisconsin 4-H program. The main recipients of the awards are high school students with at least three years of 4-H experience and one year as a young leader.
The Wisconsin Farm Bureau and Rural Mutual Insurance Company sponsor the Wisconsin 4-H Key Award program. They have sponsored these awards for over 25 years, helping 4-H honor some of Wisconsin’s best kids.
