Waukon youth among those to be honored at 4-H Legacy awards virtual ceremony Feb. 26

The Iowa 4-H Foundation has announced that a local youth is among those to be honored at the 6th Annual Iowa 4-H Legacy Awards Gala. 
Diana Davison of Waukon has won the “Contributing Youth” award and will be honored at the all-virtual event Friday, Feb. 26. 
Davison, an Allamakee County 4-H’er, lives by the motto: “Take the risk or lose the chance.” 
The Iowa 4-H Foundations has issued the following statement concerning Davison’s award:
“Heavily involved in 4-H, Diana has taken the opportunities provided by the 4-H program and run with them. She discovered her love and talent for photography and is now pursuing it as a career. She included other 4-H’ers as she honors veterans with a Quilts of Valor project and gained the confidence to become Iowa Teen Miss United States Agriculture 2020.”
The Legacy Awards celebrates Iowa 4-H and recognizes those who have made a significant impact on the program. 
“Though we’d much rather be together in person, celebrating the Legacy Awards honorees will be the next best thing, said Emily Saveraid, Iowa 4-H Foundation Executive Director. “We look forward to sharing the stories of this year’s honorees, raising vital funds to support the Iowa 4-H Program and setting a vision for the future of the Foundation.”

Dollars raised support the Iowa 4-H Foundation’s mission to fund 4-H youth programs delivered by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach and to provide other opportunities – state recognition, national 4-H trips, college scholarships and special programs which enhance the Iowa 4-H experience.
