MORGANTOWN – Ksusha Lowry-Neufeld, a member of the Shenandoah Shamrocks 4-H Club that meets in Ranson, recently emerged a winner at State 4-H Days held on the campus of West Virginia University here.
The three-day event began July 24. 4-H members from across the state tackled a host of activities organized by the leaders with the West Virginia University Extension Office in Morgantown.
Youngsters enjoyed crafts, skill-a-thons, an art show, writing, a robotics challenge, Science, Technology Engineering and Math labs, and more.
Lowry-Neufeld, whose 4-H club meets the second Monday of every month at the Ranson Senior Center, was awarded a blue ribbon for her presentation, “The Economics of Farm Markets: How Much ‘Green’ Does It Take to Buy ‘Green.’”
Lowry-Neufeld also entered two original poems as part of the State 4-H Days writing exhibit.
In addition to their 4-H projects, Shenandoah Shamrocks members are active in helping the community, including collecting donations of supplies for the Jefferson County Community Ministries food pantry and clothing closet.
The young people also lend hands to homeless shelters and transitional housing programs.
