Stephanie Sidor, Colorado state champion in artistic clothing, has been invited to the 2013 National 4-H Congress in Atlanta, Ga.
The trip will be the pinnacle of Stephanie's 4-H career, which has encompassed sewing and artistic clothing as well as turkeys, sheep, pigs, baking, cake decorating and foreign cookery.
Stephanie earned state grand champion for a jacket she decorated with appliques, foiling, hand sewing, embroidery and rhinestones. She replicated the effect on a pair of jeans.
Stephanie's entire family — parents Chuck and Teresa and three older siblings — has always been involved in 4-H. Some would call cooking and sewing old fashioned, but Stephanie feels she's ready to face life after high school equipped with valuable life skills.
Through 4-H she's also learned the importance of leadership and community service. She applies what she's learned to other activities in her life, from church to student government. A senior at Delta High School, she maintains a 4.0 grade point average and is planning to study pre-med in college. Her goal is to become a pediatrician.
At DHS she is involved in volleyball, soccer and basketball. She is a section leader in the DHS marching band and is a member of National Honor Society, Leo Club and Future Business Leaders of America.
Just 36 4-H members from Colorado have been invited to the National 4-H Congress Nov. 23-27. The theme is "Passport to Excellence." 4-H'ers will experience the world through a variety of opportunities including workshops, cultural experiences, speakers and meet-and-greets. Stephanie will work alongside 4-H'ers from across the country on a community service project in the Atlanta area. Projects range from helping in classrooms to decorating homes for the holiday season. Delegates are also urged to collect money to build the third National 4-H Congress House in the Atlanta metro area.
The trip will cost just under $1,000. The Delta County 4-H Council is covering half the expenses; Stephanie's parents are helping out with the other half.blog comments powered by Disqus
