4-H Auction set for Sept. 1 at S.D. State Fair
This year the 4-H Character Counts! and 4-H Teens as Teachers Scholarship Fund will benefit from the 4-H Auction held at the South Dakota State Fair on Sunday, Sept. 1, 2 p.m. at the DakotaLand Stage. The 4-H Auction is held in conjunction with the South Dakota Auctioneers Bid Calling Contest.
The South Dakota 4-H Teens as Teachers Scholarship program is the only one of its kind in the nation. It provides opportunities for older youth to be leaders and teachers to younger youth while earning a scholarship for post secondary education. In addition, 65 scholarships totaling $29,900 have been awarded through the 4-H Teens as Teachers Scholarship Fund, August, 2013. Your participation in the auction provides funds for these scholarships.
Riley Zoss and Logan Moody, 4-H Teens as Teachers and scholarship recipients, said: The excitement with the sailboats and fans concept was contagious and really helped the students relate to the wind energy concept. They taught lessons on how wind towers work and electricity transferred.
Over thirty different items have been donated to support 4-H. We have an exciting line-up for the 4-H Auction – something for everyone – special items include:
· $500 certificate towards the purchase of Mycogen Seed and $500 certificate towards DOW Chemical protection product at Virchow Agronomy (Bryan Pietig) Lake Preston, S.D.
