MONROE - Erin Gellings, member of Young Americans 4-H club; Shad Hanson, member of Next Generation 4-H club; Lauren Long, member of Decatur 4-H club; and Rachael Schieldt, member of New Glarus 4-H club, have been selected as the Green County recipients of the Wisconsin 4-H Key Award.

This prestigious Key Award, one of the highest recognitions a 4-H member can receive, honors a select group of 4-H participants annually. The youth receiving this award are those who have demonstrated consistent growth in their 4-H involvement, developed and applied their leadership skills, and actively participated in their club and community.

Key Award recipients are high school students with at least three years of experience in 4-H and one year as a youth leader. The Wisconsin Farm Bureau and Rural Mutual Insurance Company sponsor the Wisconsin 4-H Key Award program.

They have sponsored these awards for more than 25 years, helping 4-H to honor some of Wisconsin's finest youth.
