Eight 4-H members proudly represented Richland County at Montana 4-H Congress from July 7th to 10th. Montana 4-H Congress provides youth from across the state an opportunity to come together on the Montana State University campus in Bozeman and participate in an event like no other. Congress offers both youth and adults a venue in which to learn, be challenged, and most of all, have a great time with their peers. Montana 4-Hers have been attending an event like Congress for over 77 years. Congress has become an important tradition for many 4-H members across the state. The eight members that represented Richland County were: Johren Carpenter, Brady Gorder, John Helmuth, Jake Kunda, Tess Ler, Taylor Schepens, Taylor Searer and Kyle Topp. Carpenter, Gorder, Helmuth, Ler, Schepens and Searer all represented Richland County 4-H as ambassadors. Helmuth competed in the Livestock judging and received 5th place in the state contest. Tess Ler and Kyle Topp both competed in the Demonstrations and Illustrated Talks contest. Topp received a blue for her Illustrated Talk on Buck Brannaman and Ler took 2nd place over all with her Demonstration titled "Decoratively Delicious." Taylor Schepens and Johren Carpenter represented Richland County in the Quilting Contest. Schepens received 4th place and Carpenter was named the state contest winner. With this honor, she won a trip to National 4-H Congress in Atlanta Georgia this fall.
