Emily Prigge was recognized as the Winona 4-H Youth Representative for the month of March. She is the daughter of Terry and Jana, a member of the Lewiston Helping Hands and Hearts 4-H Club and a senior at Lewiston Altura High School. Emily plans to attend the University of Minnesota-Rochester following graduation.
Emily has held multiple leadership positions throughout her time as a 4-H member including the president and vice president of her 4-H Club and the vice president, reporter and rec. leader for the Winona County 4-H Federation. Emily has participated in multiple leadership opportunities including BLU that she credits to helping her become a better leader.
Emily’s favorite 4-H project has been showing dairy steers. I like animals, and the time and effort I put into it has taught me responsibility and patience, and I have been rewarded for it in the end,” she said. Her favorite 4-H memory includes her first state fair dairy steer project when she was called back for dairy steer showmanship and received fifth place. In addition to the Minnesota State Fair and BLU workshops. Emily has attended Regional 4-H camp and 4-H Regional Project Day.
Emily has been an excellent role model in her 4-H dairy steer projects and leadership positions, and we wish her the best of luck as she continues her education.
