The Parade of Champions radio series highlights the hard work of 4–H and FFA youth across the region. Hannah Vaagen of Devils Lake, North Dakota has been surrounded by hunting and other shooting sports her entire life. When Hannah’s older brother, Jacob, joined the 4-H shooting sports program, she decided to give it a try, too. “I’ve been shooting now for seven years. This summer, my team and I attended the national 4-H competition in Nebraska. We had a great time – it was a blast!” The Ramsey County 4-H team ended up taking second place in the national competition. Jacob has certainly learned a lot by being part of a shooting sports team. “I’ve been in this sport for about a decade now and have learned a lot about incremental efforts.You aren’t going to be the best right away and need to put in effort over time.” This salute to the next generation is sponsored by the Minnesota Corn Growers Association, North Dakota Wheat Commission, AgCountry Farm Credit Services and Associated Milk Producers Incorporated and its Dinner Bell Creamery Brand.
