For the second year in a row, an Albertan has been named 4-H Canada’s volunteer of the year.
Norma Ansloos has been a leader with the Springbank Rawhides 4-H Club since 1988.
“Our 2017 4-H Canada Volunteer Leader of the Year Award recipients best exemplify the dedication and passion all our volunteers put into 4-H,” said Shannon Benner, CEO of 4-H Canada.
“I am truly honoured to receive this award. 4-H has always been a passion of mine both as a former member and certainly as a leader,” said Ansloos. “To be able to provide leadership to our youth and see them grow into caring, capable and certainly multi-faceted adults is a very personal reward for me.”
Last year, Caroline Boddy of the Golden Prairie 4-H Club won the award. Nominations come from 4-H members who want to share the positive impact their leaders have had on them and their communities.
Nominations for the 2018 award can be submitted from Sept. 15 to Nov. 30 at the 4-H Canada website.
