American Farmers & Ranchers/Oklahoma Farmers Union (AFR/OFU) recently recognized the organization’s outstanding young leaders at the AFR/OFU 109th State Convention Feb. 22. Recipients of the 2014 AFR/OFU Star Youth Award are Trent Boles, Asher; Chance Imhoff, Prague; Lindsey Underwood, Tecumseh; and Whitney Wilkinson, Cement.
The AFR/OFU Star Youth Award is the highest honor a youth can receive from the AFR/OFU Youth Program. Students statewide are eligible for the honor. Recipients must have been active in the AFR/OFU Youth Program for a minimum of five years leading to high school graduation.
“Our Youth Program is overflowing with tomorrow’s young leaders,” said AFR/OFU President Terry Detrick. “We are confident in our award recipients’ desire and ability to lead their generation as they rise to the challenges of the ever-changing agricultural industry.”
The 2014 AFR/OFU Star Youth Award recognizes rising stars for individual achievement and service, both to the organization and in their communities. Recipients are selected based on their attitude toward agriculture, their passion to help others and their personal accomplishments. They are involved in many aspects of the youth program and are active leaders for younger students.
The AFR/OFU Youth Program offers many exciting traditions such as a speech contest series, a summer youth leadership summit, statewide scholarships, livestock handling and skills contests, livestock judging and grading competitions and many other leadership opportunities.
