What does it take to succeed in 4-H? Ask the 2019 Idaho County Achievement Award winners who were recently announced:

Junior Division winners are Mikayla Rowland, Alli Bransford and Alaina Lustig; in the Intermediate Division, Chloe Rowland, Riley Enneking and Makenna York; and in the Senior Division, Peyton Andrews, Olivia Klapprich, Aliyah Pineda and Ellea Uhlenkott.

According to Idaho County 4-H program director, Susie Heckman, during the year club leaders keep track of all of the members’ activities, giving points for their participation.

“Club leaders submit their top point earners to the 4-H Extension office at the end of the 4-H year,” she explained. “The top point earners from all of the 4-H clubs in the county are given to the 4-H Program Council and the 4-H Achievement Award winners are selected.”

Heckman said the purpose of the achievement award is to recognize 4-H’ers who exemplify the goals of the Idaho County 4-H Program. Emphasis for the award includes overall achievement, leadership and citizenship


“I have the ability to be a good leader and a great help to others,” said Riley Enneking.

Enneking is the daughter of Bob and Jennifer Enneking of Keuterville and has been a 4-H member for six years. She belongs to the Keuterville Livestock 4-H Club.

“My favorite thing about 4-H is meeting new people and having new opportunities,” she said.
