Today, Bud’s grandchildren are carrying on that same passion for the 4-H program at the Provincial Winter Fair.

2023 LEVERE LAMB AWARD
Sponsored by Levere Livestock, Knutsford BC
This award goes to a member currently exhibiting a 4-H sheep project at this year's fair and the winner is determined by a combination of aggregate points and a panel interview (during the PWF) in which they answer the questions why they should win the lamb and what is their plan for the lamb.
The lamb will be a ewe lamb born in 2024 and must be exhibited as a 4-H female project for the ensuing three years (unless the member ages out, in which case it must be shown open). A member can only win this award once.
Thank you again to Dána and Randy Levere at Levere Livestock for this generous donation! At least one of these ewe projects has gone on to be the Supreme Champion Ewe at the PWF!
The deadline for members to drop of their award form is Noon on Saturday of the Fair.
