County 4-H members win awards
Several people from Indiana County recently won major awards at the annual conference of the National Junior Horticulture Association in Virginia.
Jesse Isenberg, Gordon 4-H Club, was named first-place Grand National Winner in the Illustrated Talk category. He qualified to attend this event as the first-place winner in plant science presentations early this year at State Achievement Days. He received two perfect scores from the judges.
A team from the Clark and Connie Bruner family — Abigail, Elizabeth and John Clark Bruner — won the Grand National Award in the Young America Environmental Awareness Contest. They had landscaped a perennial bed at Four Footed Friends. They are also leaders and members in the Gordon 4-H Club. There was also a junior horticulture identification contest with John Clark Bruner placing first in his age division and Elizabeth Bruner placing first in her division and also receiving the highest overall score of all participants.
Abigail Bruner also participated in this contest.
In the photography contest, Elizabeth Bruner won a National Award in color slightly edited photo, National Award in sequence of four photos, and Good award in color unedited photo.
Abigail Bruner won a Grand National Award for color unedited photo and an Outstanding Award in color slightly edited photo.
Leader Connie Bruner also attended the event, as did Carole Carney, of Homer City, executive secretary of NJHA.
