CHILTON, Wis. — Who is your favorite agriculture youth leader? What could they do with a $2,000 award for their organization? Find out by nominating them for the 2019 Sav-A-Caf® Youth Impact Award. The award from Milk Products, maker of Sav-A-Caf® products, will recognize two leaders who encourage learning and a passion for agriculture in youth.
“Agriculture leaders play a vital role in shaping the lives of youth – the future of our industry,” says Dvir Frumkin, marketing manager for Milk Products. “Their dedication and talents do not go unnoticed and that’s why we’d like to recognize them for their efforts. Every year we’re impressed by the quality of applicants, and we look forward to hearing the stories of this year’s nominees.”
Last year’s Sav-A-Caf® Youth Impact Award winner was Richard Peters, a poultry club leader from Noble, Oklahoma. Peters extended his poultry club membership from two counties to statewide. He helped grow the club’s annual poultry show to include exhibitors from 15 states and expanded the club’s annual giveaway of more than 600 chicks.
