4-HThe 4-H Bright Futures award program is expanding to nearly 300 counties in 3 states.  The program, sponsored by Green Leaf, Inc. and Tractor Supply Company, recognizes youth in the 4-H Youth Development agricultural programs.

“Our 2014 pilot award program throughout Indiana was extremely successful,” says Kara Cress, Green Leaf Public Relations and Marketing. “We are thrilled to expand the 2016 program to include Ohio and Illinois. As a business serving the agricultural industry, this program is a positive way for Green Leaf to give back to a community and encourage and recognize 4-H youth involved in agriculture.”

The 4-H Bright Futures Award will be presented to outstanding 4-H youth involved in any agricultural category in nearly 300 counties. Winners will each receive a $25 Visa gift card and award plaque.

“Tractor Supply knows, understands and is dedicated to individuals who love and work in agriculture,” states Jessica Holmes, Marketing Manager of Tractor Supply Company. “Our values revolve around high ethics, respect, winning attitudes, teamwork, initiative and accountability. These values align directly with both Green Leaf and 4-H. We are pleased to help sponsor an award that will now honor even more 4-H agriculture youth.”
