2022 Honorees


Corporate Partner: Iowa State Fair

Since it began in 1854, the Iowa State Fair has been a showcase for agricultural exhibition and a premier destination for 4-H’ers to showcase their exhibits and highlight their learning. The 2020 renovation of the 4-H Exhibits Building provides new opportunities to showcase 4-H’ers and improves the functionality of the building for year-round use.


Outstanding Alum: The Honorable Terry Branstad

Terry E. Branstad is the former U.S. Ambassador to China and the longest serving governor in American history. A native of Leland, he was a 4-H member Winnebago County where he credits the leadership development part of the program that set a path to prolific career of public service.


Individual Supporter: the Tobin Family

Kelly & Irene Tobin raised four sons in 4-H in Taylor County. Today, the entire Tobin Family, including sons Jim, Terry, Kevin and Bernie continue to give back to the Iowa 4-H Program. In honor of their parents, a renewable scholarship was established to help two deserving young people pursue higher education each year.


Contributing Youth: Logan Pickhinke, Sac County

Logan, a Sac County 4-H’er, knows that making a difference in his community is essential, so he identifies projects and works with others to make it happen. He has been an active 10-year member of the Early Achievers 4-H Club. His community service, leadership and communications activities have earned him recognition and have help him to make a difference!
