2nd Annual 4-H Day at Cyclone Women’s Basketball Is Feb. 27

4-H youth from across the state of Iowa are welcome once again to attend an Iowa State University women’s basketball game. 4-H'ers have an opportunity to see the Cyclone women take on Kansas State University on Feb. 27. Tip-off for the game is at 7 p.m. that Saturday in Hilton Coliseum.

“We hope that 4-H clubs will take advantage of this opportunity to come to Ames, visit the state 4-H office, see the Iowa State University campus, and of course, cheer on the Cyclones,” said Shelly Greving of the Iowa 4-H Foundation.

For $15, 4-H'ers receive game admission, an exclusive 4-H Cyclone T-shirt and a pregame tailgate party at the Extension 4-H Building on the ISU Campus. The pregame tailgate will feature a pork meal donated by the Iowa Pork Producers Association. Additionally, the price includes a $2 donation to the Iowa 4-H Foundation.

“This is a great way to show dual support for the Iowa 4-H Foundation as well,” said Greving. The Iowa 4-H Foundation finances many 4-H programs including scholarships, 4-H camps and National 4-H Conference.

This is the second annual 4-H Day at Cyclone Women’s Basketball. Last year the event brought around 1,000 4-H members, volunteers, staff and alumni to Ames for the evening, explained Greving.

“We are looking to be close to the 1,000 mark in attendance again this year,“ said Greving. “Anyone associated with 4-H is welcome to attend to make this a great showing for Iowa’s 4-H program.”

For tickets to the game go to the ISU Extension Online Store at http://tinyurl.com/4hisuwbb. Tickets must be purchased by Feb. 1. Tickets and T-shirts must be picked up at the tailgate party prior to the game on Feb. 27 from 5- 6:30 p.m.

Alumni Spotlight: Delaney Howell

At the young age of 23, Louisa county 4-H alum, Delaney Howell was hired as the first female host of IPTV’s market to market. Since then, she has stayed involved in a variety of projects related to agricultural broadcasting.

Starting in 2016, Howell launched Ag News Daily as a daily news aggregate and podcast and currently serves as the president. She was also the founder of AgCulture Media LLC specializing in agricultural related video production. In 2017, she additionally started working as radio host for Your Ag Network and a reporter for This Week in Agribusiness.

“I actually started out college as an agricultural education major and it wasn’t until my junior year that I decided to make the transition to just a general Ag degree with a broadcasting minor,” said Howell. “After working for two years at my college town’s local radio station, KNIM “the Ville”, it turns out I loved it and I found a place where I felt like I could still educate people through the information I wa…

Leaving a Legacy: Norval and Esther Mosher

The 4-H program is so much more than just ribbons and trophies for the Mosher family in the small town of Liscomb, Iowa. For Norval and Esther Mosher of Marshall County, lifelong leadership and communication skills are some of the most important things they have gained in 4-H. Their skills and wisdom have been passed along to their children and grandchildren who still work with them on the family farm to this day.

Norval Mosher, a Van Buren County native, was a member of the Win More 4-H Club in high school where he showed one jersey calf at the county fair. After attending Iowa State University, he went on as a 4-H county youth assistant in Butler County for three years before moving to the family farm in 1959. He continues to farm with his children and grandchildren still feeding the cattle himself twice a day.

“Our major goal has been to help the kids and grandkids develop and grow,” Norval Mosher said. “We want them to be able to meet people, do things, think on their feet, and…

Celine Beggs: Why I stayed with 4-H

When asked for a favorite 4-H memory, or why she joined the 4-H Program, Celine Beggs would rather answer why she stayed in 4-H. Celine is currently pursuing her master's degree at Iowa State University while working part time at the Iowa 4-H Foundation as an administrative specialist. Here, in her own words, is her 4-H story:


When I really think back on my time as a 4-H member, and the choices I’ve made through life, I think back to my first Taylor County Fair photography judging experience. I was extremely nervous. I presented the judge with two projects; a photo of cats and a series of photos of my dog. The photos were rough and the writeups were worse, but the judge took time to get to know me and my photography knowledge. He taught me so many different terms and techniques and challenged me to pick two, work on them, and bring back a stronger photo next year. 
I did just that. Each year, he would challenge me to do something better and he took the time to educate in the proces…
