Lancaster County 4-H is proud to announce Jessica Marsh of Lincoln as winner of the July “Heart of 4-H Award” in recognition of outstanding volunteer service.

She is co-leader of the Lancaster Leaders 4-H club, and helped start the club 5 years ago. T he club has been recognized as a Nebraska Club of Excellence for 4 years, which means it meets specific standards of excellence, such as meeting at least six times per year and having youth serve in leadership roles. Jessica has helped lead club members in community-service projects, such as collecting donations for people in need, marching in the Veterans Day Parade, staffing a booth at the Kiwanis Karnival for Elliot Elementary School students and helping staff shifts at 4-H Council’s food stand during the Lancaster County Super Fair.

“I love the variety of programs offered by 4-H,” Jessica says, “There truly is something for everyone! Our club has members of all ages and it is fun to see them interact. Our club members really enjoy working in the food stand at the fair. The members are always so excited about their fair projects and it is fun to see them share their results, then work together in the stand. It is really a neat year-to-year comparison of how much they have grown physically and in experience.”
