Inspiring Our Youth with Grain for Goodness
Apr 21, 2020
With the help of a donation from our Grain for Goodness program, the Sargent County Hippology Club was able to go to the Western National Roundup this year. Roger Bopp applied for the matching-funds program through Full Circle Ag and chose for his donation to be given to the Sargent County Hippology Club.
The National Western Roundup provides a place for youth to compete nationally while encouraging teamwork and self-confidence, and while focusing on the 4-H Mission Mandates: Science, Engineering, Technology, Mathematics, Healthy Living and Citizenship. Each participating youth and adult participates in one or more contests and/or workshops. The Sargent County Hippology Club was able to take advantage of being able to participate in this educating experience.
Here is what Kassidy Larson had to say about her experience:
"...this weekend I finally made my goal of competing at Roundup and my most recent goal of being one of the top five teams. 4th place Horse Bowl team is better than I could've ever imagined at 9 when I made my goal....We really appreciate all the ways Full Circle has supported our Hippology team and the Sargent County 4-H program!"
The true appreciation of these club members is incredibly heart-warming and is the exact reason we chose to form a program that not only gives back to our communities, but supports our youth as well.
