  • Rosevold Memorial Scholarship ($400) - Abby Braaten, Richland County

  • Steve E. and Mary M. Tuhy Scholarship ($500) - Rachel Foerster, Cass County

As part of the selection process, applicants submit answers to questions about what skills and types of knowledge they gained from 4-H project and leadership experiences, how they used 4‐H experiences to impact their communities, and how 4‐H has helped shape them as a person and influenced their futures.

“After reading more than 50 applications from 4-H’ers across the state of North Dakota, I am inspired and assured that the future is bright and our North Dakota 4-H youth are remarkable,” says Cheryl Kuhn, North Dakota 4-H Foundation executive director.

4-H is the largest and only research-based youth organization in North Dakota. Nearly 5,400 youth were 4-H members in 2013 (the latest statistics available). However, more than 25,000 youth participated in North Dakota State University Extension Service youth development activities through one-time programs, in-school or after-school programs, and camps.

The North Dakota 4-H Foundation is the NDSU Center for 4-H Youth Development's private-sector, nonprofit partner. Visit http://www.ndsu.edu/4h for more information about scholarships and other 4-H activities in North Dakota.
