This year, the Kendall County Livestock Auction Committee awarded 4-H member Lydia Oker of Sandwich with its $500 scholarship. Each year, the committee honors one student, who is chosen based on livestock experiences, achievement, and community and school activities. The recipient must be at least a four-year member of 4-H, and they must be enrolled in a dairy, beef, sheep, goat, chicken, rabbit, or swine project.
