"Thanks to 4-H, I have been able to experience many things that I likely wouldn't have had the chance to experience," said Richardson.

"Iowa 4-H Foundation scholarships acknowledge the hard work and dedication of young people who have used their 4-H skills and experiences to 'make the best better' for others," said Emily Saveraid, Executive Director of the Iowa 4-H Foundation. "We also are thankful for the many scholarship donors who fund these important opportunities for Iowa 4-H'ers."

Each of the six regions of the Iowa Bankers Association will recognize outstanding 4-H'ers who will be pursuing a private or public, two or four-year college degree in the state of Iowa.
