The Friend of 4-H award is all about 4-H. There are many things that come to mind.

The 2022 Friend of 4-H award recipient is an example of all of these things, which is a big reason why he has been chosen for this award. This year’s winner is Bryan Schmitz of Baileyville.
The Pony Express 4-H Club is the winner of the Mary Sourk Club of Excellence Winner. This award is based on the belief of former Community Club leader, Sourk, of the Goff Rustlers 4-H Club.

Her family concurs and has based this award on those activities, which Sourk felt were most indicative of a 4-H club of excellence.
