Group of Youth Leaders Recognized with Farmers Union's Prestigious Torchbearer Award
– By SDFU Foundation
The South Dakota Farmers Union honored a group of devoted youth for their commitment to community, involvement and leadership development at the 2018 S.D. Farmers Union State Convention held in Pierre Nov. 29-30.
The Torchbearer Award is the highest achievement in the S.D. Farmers Union Education Program. To receive the award, a camper must complete five years of service. It showcases the commitment campers have put toward the education department, and the time dedicated to serving rural communities.
True to the name of the award, continuing the traditions of the S.D. Farmers Union educational programming is often a priority for those eligible to receive the Torchbearer Award.
