The Outstanding 4-H’er Awards were recently awarded to 12 active 4-H at the 2017 Schuylkill county 4-H Achievement Night Banquet.  Six of the twelve recipients were members of the Blue Mt. 4-H Livestock Club.  Recipients of the award from this club were Peyton James for Market Goat, and Samantha Strouse for Market Steer in the 8 to 12 year division.  In the Intermediate division ages 13 to 15 it was Stefani Strouse for leadership, Sara Strouse and Makayla Rioux for market lamb and Collin Felty for Alpaca

Any 4-H’er at any point in time throughout their career may apply for the Outstanding 4-H’er Award.  4-Her’s were to fill out an application outlining their activities and accomplishments throughout the year.  A letter of recommendation from the club leader accompanied the application.  The application were reviewed by members of the 4-H Development Board.  The awards are given in the three age groups of junior, intermediates and senior division and the 4-H member selects a category that they wish to apply.  The committee had a very difficult decision to make regarding the recipients of this award.  In the end six of the 12 recipients were from the Blue Mt. 4-H Livestock Club.  They are to be commended for their work though out the year as a 4-H’er.
