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

He has volunteered with 4-H since aging out of 4-H in Wyoming 9 years ago. Tyler coaches Lancaster County livestock judging teams through regular practices and at contests such as the statewide Premiere Animal Science Event. At the Lancaster County Super Fair, he is the superintendent of the 4-H Livestock Judging Contest. Tyler and his wife raise club lamb projects and help multiple families with their market lamb and breeding sheep projects, as well as provide sheep for several youth livestock judging contests.

“Growing up 4-H was a huge part of my life. I was a member and both of my parents were 4-H club leaders and Council members, so we were always involved,” says Tyler. “It only seems right to give back to a program that helped mold me into the person I am today and to help youth understand the importance of agriculture. I have a passion for teaching and working with youth. There is no better feeling than helping a 4-H youth attain their goals all while learning life skills along the way.”
