[August 22, 2013]  Six college-bound Illinois 4-H members were recognized as 4-H Legacy of Leadership Scholars during the annual 4-H Family Event on Aug. 10 at the Illinois State Fair. The winners each received a $1,000 college scholarship.

Among those selected was Cameron Jodlowski, a 10-year member of the Atlanta Town & Country 4-H in Logan County. He will attend Iowa State University. The scholarship sponsor was Farm Credit Services of Illinois, represented at the 4-H Family Event by Rod Stoll.

Since its inception in 2003, 61 4-H members have been named a Legacy of Leadership Scholar. The scholarship is merit-based and available to 4-H members who are high school seniors or in their last year of 4-H membership. The statewide scholarship program is coordinated by the Illinois 4-H Foundation and the University of Illinois Extension state 4-H office.

The Illinois 4-H Foundation welcomes individuals, corporations and organizations as partners in providing additional funds for further scholarship recipients. The executive director of the foundation is Angie Barnard.
