The total $ received from our sponsors over the past year was over $11500.   It is with great appreciation that we recognize these businesses and individuals, as without their support of the 4-H program we would not be able to host quality 4-H programs and we would not be able to have give out multiple awards to our deserving youth.  When you see these people or patronize their businesses please take the time to thank them for supporting the Sanborn County 4-H Program.


As the 2019-2020 4-H year comes to an end and a new one begins, Sanborn County 4-H annually holds two events to acknowledge the 4-Hers many achievements, the Recognition Event and Shooting Sports Award Night.  Due to the current COVID situation, it was decided to combine the two events and make some changes this year in honoring our youth.  4-Hers were invited to the 4-H Building in Forestburg on Sunday, November 8th at staggered times starting at 4:00 p.m. to pick up their awards, record books and premium money.  A green backdrop was set up allowing the 4-Hers to take pictures with their awards.  The following 4-Hers were recognized for their accomplishments.
