The Dawson County 4‑H Council announced at the recent 4‑H Achievement Barbecue their 4‑H nominees to represent Dawson County in the State competition of the 4‑H Awards/Incentives program.
The main basis for selection is the growth of the 4-H'er, how they have shared their knowledge with others, and how they have been involved in their community.
