Feb 8, 2015 From staff reports

Financial support from the Wyoming State 4-H Foundation to county 4-H programs in fiscal year 2014 was roughly $242,000.

Financial assistance varied per county, ranging from roughly $500 in Sweetwater County to approximately $25,000 in Albany County. Fremont County received roughly $13,000.

Additionally, $28,000 went toward awards for all state contests.

"Each county has the opportunity to have their youths attend numerous statewide events, national trips, compete in state contests or apply for college scholarships," foundation director Steve Mack said. "Counties that have youths taking advantage of those opportunities will see a larger portion of the benefits the Wyoming State 4-H Foundation provides."

County 4-H programs and the state foundation are not-for-profit organizations that work together to provide experiences to help youths excel during their school years and lifetime, Mack said.

The support goes toward college scholarships, out-of-state trips, Showcase Showdown and shooting sports, youth in governance, and meat, wool, horse and livestock judging.

Individual, corporate and institutional donations supplement the foundation's monetary support to Wyoming's 4-H program.
