|Area 4-H members collect scholarships at Stampede|
Hard work for two 4-H members from Rosemary and one from Bassano recently paid dividends with the trio collecting Calgary Stampede International Youth Livestock Scholarships.
Rosemary’s Cayley Peltzer was awarded $3,000 while her brother Jaxson picked up $500. Bassano’s Laurie Morasch earned $1,000.
It all started July 7 with a Summer Synergy program where 4-H participants showed up in Olds to set up stalls. Members then took part in competitions that included marketing, judging, team judging and showmanship. Confirmation took place on Thursday and Friday.
4-H members were awarded points based on the number of activities they took part in and for how they placed. Based on this the top 34 seniors earned scholarships, said Peltzer.
This is her fourth International Youth Livestock scholarship. She has won $8,000 in scholarships which will help when she attends Olds College for the animal health technician program. She also plans on taking the agri-business program which will open more doors for her. Full Story >
