Outstanding Contribution to 4-H awarded

By Paula Linke 

Each year, Sanborn County 4-H selects a recipient of the Outstanding Contribution to 4-H. For 2019, this honor went to Vickie Hines. Vickie served as a 4-H Leader for many years, including service as the Treasurer. By far, her most notable contributions are in the dog project area where she has volunteered hundreds of hours of time to teach 4-H members how to train and show dogs, and has also judged many 4-H dog shows at the local and state level. In recent years, the numbers in this project area had fallen very low in Sanborn County.  After hearing that there were many young members interested in the dog project, Vickie offered to hold weekly training classes this summer. This resulted in 17 4-H members enrolled in the Dog Project that practiced on a regular basis, and 11 members exhibiting at 4-H Achievement Days.  Weekly practice will again be scheduled in 2020. The 4-H Dog Project area is thriving again thanks to Vickie Hines and her commitment to our 4-H youth.
