The Roby Young 4-H Best of Show award focuses on the recognition of an indoor entry and provides a special incentive for members to finish their projects and do quality exhibits.

About Roby Young
Roby Young was a lifelong supporter of the 4-H program and worked tirelessly over the years to keep 4-H strong in Monongalia County. Roby was on the Camp Muffly Board for many years, actively supporting 4-H in our community. The entire Young family, following Roby’s lead, has played a role in 4-H by completing individual projects, attending camp, volunteering, providing snacks and supplies, teaching, tackling camp improvements, or in some way, giving back to 4-H. Roby Young established a tradition of giving back to the community in a quiet, unassuming fashion. This award provides an opportunity for two organizations who have been blessed with his community service – 4-H and Rotary – to acknowledge his contributions through a youth award. Roby passed away on June 14, 2019.
