2012 4-H Sale of Champions Raises $155,133

Of the 25 projects in this year’s 42nd annual 4-H Sale of Champions, two raised record amounts.  Overall, the sale generated a total of $155,133 that helps 4-H members attend college, purchase future 4-H livestock projects and develop careers.

This year’s sale featured an “intense” sibling rivalry between Alexandra Raute, 14, and Samantha Raute, 17. Younger sister Alexandra raised $3,850 with her Reserve Grand Champion Market Lamb; Samantha followed with her Champion Hampshire Market Lamb, raising $3,050.

“She [Samantha] is older, so she gets the better sheep,” Alexandra said, even though this year, the younger Raute sister had the better showing. “We’re usually very competitive in the barn.”
