The Lebanon County 4-H Board of Directors has awarded two 4-H members with $1,000 academic awards in recognition of their notable 4-H project experiences, community service, and academic achievements.

Erin Shuey of Jonestown and James Voight of Fredericksburg are the recipients of these awards.

Shuey is planning to attend Delaware Valley University and will major in conservation and wildlife management. She has showcased her leadership skills through various roles in the Lebanon County Livestock 4-H Club and the Lebanon County Dairy Beef 4-H Club.

Voight will pursue a major in aerospace engineering at Penn State University. Currently serving as the president of the Lebanon County Livestock 4-H Club, Voight is an active participant of the 4-H livestock judging team.

Each recipient was honored with a $1,000 award and a certificate from the Lebanon County 4-H Program.

Managed locally by Penn State Extension, 4-H is an informal educational youth-development program under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. This initiative aims to help young individuals develop necessary knowledge and skills, nurturing them into capable, caring, and contributing citizens.
