( Editor’s note: Each year, “Farm and Dairy” sponsors the 4-H creative writing competition at the Ohio State Fair that draws 4-H’ers from around the state who have previously won merit at the county level. Today, we share one winner’s words of thanks.)
I cannot tell you how much I appreciate my clock trophy as an award from the Ohio State Fair. It is certainly an accomplishment that I did not think I could achieve.
I am now even more confident in myself and in my writing, which will encourage me to continue in the future until I become a true novelist.
This is my greatest goal, and I can only hope that this 4-H experience is only the beginning of my writing career.
Again, thank you for the beautiful clock trophy; I will treasure it always.
