Chisum Grund, Sunflower District 4-H member, was the 2016 Swine Medallion Winner at this year’s Emerald Circle Banquet in Manhattan. The annual 4-H Foundation awards banquet recognizes outstanding achievement by 4-H members.
Grund recalls raising his first litter of pigs and says being a part of the process from breeding to selecting his show animal from the litter was very satisfying. Grund exhibited the fourth-place market hog at the 2015 Kansas State Fair and was fourth in showmanship at the National Junior Swine in Louisville, Ky.
Award recipients are selected through an annual application and review process. Applications are judged with emphasis on 4-H leadership, citizenship and involvement.
