Eileen Nielsen receives state 4-H volunteer award


  Eileen Nielsen was awarded a Tribute to Volunteer Excellence Award at the  Montana State 4-H Leadership Forum in Miles City on September 28th.  The Montana Tribute to Volunteer Excellence Award program honors outstanding 4-H volunteer leaders in our state.  The award is based on a volunteer’s contribution and impact that helps motivate and encourage others. 


Nielsen started as a 4-H Volunteer leader in Daniels County when her oldest daughter joined 4-H and continued as a 4-H leader in Prairie County when her family moved here in 1990 and remains a 4-H leader today. She regularly presents and helps with horse, sewing, quilting, and craft project workshops during the 4-H year in Prairie County.  She is also a faithful representative at 4-H Council meetings and chairs or serves on many committees throughout the year. 
Nielsen has chaperoned a 4-H delegation to Montana State 4-H Congress almost every year since 1990 in addition to serving as a state contest coordinator. Nielsen has enjoyed networking with 4-H leaders from across the state and region at Montana Leadership Forums and Western Regional Leadership Forums. Eileen now has grandchildren involved in the 4-H program and children serving as 4-H leaders.
