Reading Time: < 1 minute

Two Alberta entries were among the 10 national winners in the Proud to Bee a 4-H’er video contest.

In his video, Colton Skori lists four reasons why he loves belonging to the Irma 4-H Beef Club, including his beef project, all the friends he makes, and serving the community.

“And last but not least, I really like public speaking,” he says in his video. “4-H has given me a lot of confidence.”

Five members of the 4-W 4-H Club in Whitecourt offered a comic take on their skating prowess to earn a Top 10 finish. They won selfie sticks while Skori nabbed an iPad for his third-place entry.

Approximately 3,800 votes were cast during the online public voting period.

The contest goal was to highlight the common values and central experience of 4-H in building responsible, caring and contributing young leaders, and the sense of pride and accomplishment they all feel as 4-H’ers, the organization said in a release.
