As ambassadors, they will assist with activities in local counties and at state 4-H events to engage youth in areas including agriculture, health, leadership and science.

As local members of the Crow Peak Valley Rangers 4-H Club, Marrs and the Gordon sisters have been involved in 4-H for nearly a decade with activities including public speaking, judging contests, beef education and promotion, animal care and contributing to community service efforts.

“Having three of our 4-H members selected from our club here in Spearfish says something for their passion for 4-H and a personal desire to grow and succeed,” says Mary Pochop, Crow Peak Valley Ranger 4-H Club co-leader.

“All of our club’s youth receive the value of the 4-H experience and have the opportunity to contribute to service to in our community.”

In the United States, 4-H programs empower six million young people through the 110 land-grant universities and Cooperative Extension in more than 3,000 local offices serving every county and parish in the country.
