With the Minnesota State Fair canceled this year of course there was not a 4-H Purple Ribbon Livestock Auction either. That is a big event for 4-H members showing livestock at the Minnesota State Fair! Thanks to Ag Analyst Kent Thiesse, Steve Pooch with the Minnesota Livestock Breeders Association, many other volunteers and donors there will be a 4-H Auction Scholarship Award Program on Monday September 7, 2020.

There will be a total of 51 youth leaders with 4-H animal science projects that will be awarded 4-H auction scholarships. Thanks to very generous sponsors more than $86,000 in scholarships will be awarded. The 4-H Auction Scholarship Award Program will be virtual at 7:00 pm on Labor Day, September 7, 2020. Here is the link if you would like to watch it live on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/mlba4HPurpleRibbonAuction
