EMMETSBURG, IA – MaxYield Cooperative recently contributed $1400 towards the membership dues for Palo Alto County 4-H members. The check was presented to Julie Naig, Palo Alto County Youth Coordinator, and other ISU Extension and Outreach staff on October 6th during National 4-H Week. The funds will pay $10 of the $35 state dues for 4-H members in the county. This membership not only allows students to showcase and compete with their projects at the Palo Alto County Fair and Iowa State Fair, it also provides them with opportunities to participate in conferences, workshops, and community service.

“MaxYield Cooperative recognizes the value that 4-H brings, not only to the youth that participate but also to our communities,” explained Emily Campbell, talent recruitment and communications specialist at MaxYield Cooperative. “Being a 4-H alumna myself, I know that the members of Palo Alto County 4-H will be the next generation of leaders that impacts the world. MaxYield is proud to assist the next generation of leaders in growing as 4-Hers by easing the financial obligation of the families of Palo Alto County’s 140 members.”

The cooperative contributes nearly $13,000 to 4-H in seven Iowa counties annually.
