Local 4-Her earns top prize in statewide essay contest

Tatiana Roberts, daughter of Sam and Jelitza Roberts of Woonsocket, was recently notified that she was the winner of a Thanksgiving essay contest in the 4-H Division.

Every Thanksgiving, the President of the United States is gifted a turkey – and usually pardons it as a Thanksgiving tradition. This year, for the first time, that special turkey came from right here in South Dakota. Two toms were picked from the bunch on a turkey farm in Riverside Colony near Huron to travel to Washington D.C. to meet President Donald Trump on Thanksgiving Day.

To help commemorate the event, the South Dakota Poultry Industries Association held a Thanksgiving essay contest with categories in 4-H, FFA and Family. 

Roberts won the contest, and as a result, she will receive $500 for her 4-H club, the Town ‘N Kountry Kids Red Group 4-H Club.
