Each year Redwood County 4-H Ribbon Auction Boosters sponsor a $250 scholarship to our 4-H youth. This year there were five graduating seniors chosen to each receive a $250 scholarship to use towards their future plans. Funding for the education based scholarship is a direct result of our annual Redwood County 4-H Ribbon Auction held each year at the Redwood County Fair.
The 4-H Ribbon Auction is the highlight of the year for our 4-H livestock participants. The Ribbon Auction comes with a lot of experiential learning opportunities including communication skills, written communication education, networking skill development, time management, presentation, and so much more! On behalf of the Redwood County 4-H Ribbon Auction Boosters I would like to thank all those who support our Ribbon Auction. Funding earned from our auction goes directly to support our youth and their experiential education programs including our 4-H Ribbon Auction Booster Scholarship program.
Scholarship applicants complete an application and a one page essay regarding their time in 4-H. The five 4-Hers chosen to receive the scholarships are: Ashtyn Altmann, Ethan Carlson, Jayden Carlson, Jackson Guggisberg, and Gina Huhnerkoch. Congratulations! And best wishes as you step into the next chapter of your life.
