We asked for your memories and photos of winning an Achievement Award a few issues back. We received some great responses!
From Jennifer Brickner-York:
I was the Ohio Achievement Award winner in Gardening and Horticulture in 1992 and am attaching a few photos from our trip to Chicago including of my name tag, which I still have. I recently attended a workshop about completing the Achievement Award form for my daughter and it brought back a lot of fond memories! Funny that the form hasn’t changed that much since then!
From Ann Ball:
I went to National 4-H Club Congress in 1978 in Chicago. This year is our 40th Anniversary and would love to have a reunion! Jim Helt was one of the adult staff with us.
I went in Food Preservation and met the president of Kerr Canning Company. “Ann Ball from Mason, Ohio sponsored by Kerr,” he read and laughed. He asked if I was a spy for Ball Canning company! I have so many memories from that trip and am still in contact with longtime friends who were also winners and were on the trip.
