Posted in Fountain Fillmore County Fair

Evin Zoellner was recognized as the Kiwanis Sunrisers of Winona 4-H Youth.

Representative for the Month of November. Evin is a senior at Acorns to Oaks Academy. She is the daughter of Joel and Kirsten Zoellner from Fountain, Minn., and is a member of Happy Hart 4-H Club.

Evin has held the leadership roles of vice president and secretary of her club and county historian. Evin has participated in many livestock projects such as goat, horse and beef as well as non-livestock projects. One of her outstanding accomplishments was winning Champion Senior Showmanship and Reserve Champion All Species Showmanship. Evin has brought a wide variety of projects to the fair. Evin shared, “The most interesting thing that I’ve shown is my commercial beef steer that I broke to ride after our pony became lame. I have learned many training, health management and extra tips through the horse and goat projects. 4-H has given me opportunities to learn many different things including gaining experiences with a wide variety of animals, people and project areas. I was also able to make new friends.”

When asked what 4-H has to offer other youth, Evin stated, “The first thing I would tell my friends is how fun and engaging 4-H is. Every 4-H activity or event that I’ve attended has been packed with laughs.”

Winona Sunrisers Kiwanis Club honors one outstanding Winona County 4-H member during its breakfast meeting the fourth Wednesday of each month. The club meets on a weekly basis every Wednesday morning at 7 a.m. at the Winona Family Restaurant in Winona.
