Ann MoenAnn Moen began working for Iowa State University Extension in Winneshiek County in 1980 serving as an office assistant. She was instrumental in the production of materials for the county fair often working far into the night to make sure everything was ready. She was also good at calling and finding answers to people’s questions when they came into the Extension Office. Ann retired from ISU Extension-Winneshiek County in 2010. She also served as a 4-H leader for the Washington Prairie Peppers for over fifteen years.


Because of her dedication to 4-H, Ann has been recognized with several awards. At the county level, she received the Honorary 4-H Award and the Meritorious Service Award.


She has impacted the 4-H program and community in many ways. Ann was often the first person people saw when they walked in the door to the County Extension Office. Over the years, Ann has helped hundreds of 4-H youth and 4-H leaders by providing support with paperwork, resources, and questions.


As a 4-H leader, Ann volunteered countless hours to help the Washington Prairie Peppers. Ann guided many members through projects, presentations, and animal showing. Ann also served at the 4-H Restaurant during the fair, helped design and put together the booth and encouraged the members no matter how their exhibits were evaluated. Ann helped both of her children with whatever their projects were and was always there to say, “Good job”. Ann worked well with other leaders and made sure the meetings were both fun and full of learning experiences. 


Ann and her husband, Duane, live in Decorah and have both been great supporters of 4-H. They have two adult children: Ron (Kathy) and Wendy and three grandchildren: Abby, Morgan and Jonathan. Winneshiek County 4-H is very blessed to have Ann’s guidance and support for many years.
