BLACKFOOT — Casey Rosin from Firth and Kathy Ternus from Blackfoot were recognized for their leadership at the Bingham County 4-H Open House Monday evening.
Rosin received the Spirit of 4-H award and $200. This is the third year Randy and Julie Wilmot have sponsored this award.
Randy Wilmot said the Spirit of 4-H award goes to “the youth member who goes beyond what they need to do; they put in that extra effort.”
Rosin helped others at the state fair and as vice president of his club, he stepped up when the president of the club passed away, Wilmot said. Rosin was also seen helping younger members complete their 4-H projects.
He is a member of the Last Chance 4-H Club in Blackfoot.
Blackfoot High School senior Kathy Ternus was recognized for her leadership in 4-H. She received the Idaho State Key Award that recognizes student leadership.
Ternus has served in a variety of leadership positions. These include being a teen leader and a camp leader; she has also been on the 4-H advisory board.
She is a member of the 4-H Critter Sitters Club and the Last Chance 4-H Club. She has been in 4-H for 12 years.
Kelsie Ward from Blackfoot received the Clyde Twitchell Memorial award. This is the first year this award has been presented. It goes to the person who earns third place in the beef showmanship contest. Ward earned a halter.
Over $5,300 was distributed Monday to 4-H members who participated in the Bingham County and state 4-H fairs.
If a 4-H member was unable to pick up his/her premium, it is available at the 4-H office at 583 W. Sexton St., Blackfoot. Members can also register for the new 4-H season that started Oct. 1.
