Helotes 4H members ranging in ages from 5 to 17 participated in the second annual Fiesta medal design contest. This year, Joann Sosa collected entries from the three Helotes 4H clubs—LSO, LSP, and Unlimited.
This year, the theme required the students to list Helotes 4H 2018. Most of the medals were designed around the motto and lessons learned while being a club member.
As diverse as the three Helotes clubs may be, the medals proved to range from simplistic to intricate.
A panel of judges that included the 4H Booster club president, two City Council members, two volunteers, and two students ranked their favorite medal.
The first place winners from each age division were then considered for the grand champion design. The grand champion design will be manufactured into this year’s medal to represent Helotes 4H.
Last year, an anonymous donor provided the funds to create medals of all first place winners. The 4H sold over 300 medals last year during Fiesta.
The funds from the medal sales are used to support different 4H projects throughout the year.
This year, Lauren Milton, senior at O’Connor High School completed this year’s grand champion design. Her medal will be sent to production and should be available in early January. Make plans now to support this project of the Helotes 4H.
