See the Impact these 4-H Scholarships have made on our Routt County youth:

Not only did my participation in 4-H considerably influence my educational and extracurricular path after high school, but the scholarships I received from the 4-H scholarship foundation helped me achieve my goals and was a monumental reason I graduated with out any debt!” – Hallie Myhre

“I believe in the power of education because that education is what got me to where I am today.  Education teaches you how to think and how to solve problems.  I  have been blessed beyond what I deserve, and this is an opportunity for me to help provide for somebody else.” – Rachel Rolando

“These scholarships have allowed me to go through nursing school, which I will be completing in December, without having to work at the same time.  This has allowed me to focus on my studies and has relieved me of extra stress.  Additionally, I continue to be grateful for the 4-H program and community who has helped me to conquer my dreams.” – Katelyn Ibarra
