Last updated on Monday, December 10, 2018

(DUBOIS CO) - Dylan Weyer, a Forest Park Jr/Sr High School freshman, was named the Dubois County 2018 4-H Leader of the Year.


The Dubois County Free Press reports, Dylan currently serves as a member of the junior leader advisory board. As an advisory board member, he attends 4-H Council meetings and helps to communicate between Junior Leaders and the Council. He also assists with set up at events put on by the 4-H Council. He spent 21 hours helping with set up at fair events in July.

In addition, Dylan brings a lot of technical expertise to the program. He is usually called upon to operate the Fairgrounds' new electronic sign by the highway. He also gets camera footage of different events using his drone. He shares the pictures and footage with the 4-H Council and Extension Office to use for promotional purposes.

The Junior Leader of the Year Award was first introduced in 2017. It is given to junior leaders to reward members for their hard work and achievements. The junior leader of the year award is presented to the member with the most collected points over the course of the year. The points are based on both services to the 4-H program as well as service to the community.

According to the 4-H Council, Dylan has been a reliable 4-H member and junior leader even before he entered high school. "We certainly value all the work he has done as a junior leader and advisory board member this past year," they wrote.

Junior leaders will be hosting an End of the Year Holiday Celebration on Tuesday, December 11 from 7-9 p.m. Anyone in grades 7 through 12 is welcome to attend the event. You don't have to be in 4-H to come. There will be free food, games, and prizes.
