Two Lee County Youth Honored With Annual “Belt Buckle Award” at County Fair

KILJ Radio was able to make two special presentations at the Lee County Fair on Wednesday evening. Each year at this time, Brownfield Ag News sponsors the Ag Youth awards, and partnering with KILJ, they choose a young man and young woman to recognize them in their various accomplishments.

Our first recipient is Justin Snider! Justin has been in 4H for 9 years now and is a member of the Harrison Huskies 4H club. He recently graduated from Central Lee High School. He has been active in showing poultry, horses, goats, and sheep, throughout his 4H career.

Our second recipient is Haley Lampe! Haley has been a member of 4H for 12 years and has been club president of her Banner Farmers 4H club. She has also been the president of the Lee County Teen County Council. Haley was one of five students awarded the Lee County 4H scholarship. She graduated from Fort Madison High School and will be attending Iowa State University this fall to study Animal Science.

Both recipients received a Wal-Mart gift card for their 4H club, as well as a belt buckle. Congratulations once again to both Justin Snider and Haley Lampe!
