The accomplishments of Agassiz Rainbow 4H Club members were celebrated on Saturday night in their annual awards night.

Numerous awards were handed out to local youth, from first year members to those who have left home for universities across Canada.

The youngest award recipient of the night was Bradley Webb, who at nine years old won Jr. Champion Dairy Showman and Second Overall Top Junior Member.

More than 50 awards were handed out during the ceremony, emceed by 4H leader Ken Schwaerzle. Top first year member was Frank Flokstra. Most improved member went to two members this year, Brooke Webb and Hallie Bryant.

Other top winners included Megan Skalicky, Savannah Blank, Bev Chard, Mieka Giesler, Gina Flukiger, Brooke Webb, Brittany Webb and Daniel Charleton.

All those who won awards were given gifts to take home, ranging from gift certificates, to personalized blankets, travel bags, photo albums and statues.

At the end of the awards, the entire 4H club called up their leaders to present them with awards as well. Each award was sponsored by a local business or organization.
