Saskatchewan – 4-H Saskatchewan is excited to announce the recipients of the Journey to the Future Sustainability Grant, supported by Nutrien.
The $2,000 grand prize will go to the Burnham 4-H Club to help with their Bee Project. The club will be purchasing bees and hives, as well as bee keeping equipment and seeds to naturalize the surrounding habitat. The 4-H members will make various items from the bees and will then sell their products, using the proceeds to fund other projects and support various charitable organizations.
“Congratulations to the recipients of the ‘Journey to the Future Sustainability Grant’ and thank you to all those who applied,” Rose Lecky, Senior Manager of Community Relations & Investments for Nutrien said. “Nutrien is proud to partner with 4-H Saskatchewan to help bring ideas to life and make real positive impacts in our communities.”
There were also three clubs and districts, which will receive $1,000 each for their projects. They include:
“We are grateful to Nutrien for supporting our 4-H clubs and districts, and the great work they do in their communities,” said Executive Director Cera Youngson. “They help make it possible for our members to Learn To Do By Doing and show off their leadership skills in their club, community, country and the world.”
This grant program required the club or district to have members complete the Journey 2050, Farmers 2050, Watershed Detective, and/or Watershed Explorer games and then tell us how they could apply what they learned from these games to better their club, their community, their country, or the world. Nutrien made a total of $5,000 available to support the recipients with their projects.
