Allamakee County 4-H’ers traveled to Iowa State University in Ames November 6 for the Grow by FarmHer conference. Grow is a series of events that inspire and empower young women in agriculture to take an active role in the agriculture industry. A total of 370 young women ages 16-22 with an interest in agriculture had the opportunity to participate in inspirational and informational experiences as a group as well as meaningful one-on-one connections with women ag leaders. At Grow by FarmHer, young women were offered a real-life look at what they need to do to be successful ag leaders, while gaining the encouragement and making the connections that are pivotal to helping them GROW in agriculture. Pictured above at the Grow by FarmHer event are, left to right, Allamakee County 4-H alumna Erika Johnson, who is currently a student at Iowa State University; and Allamakee County 4-H'ers Diana Davison, Madelyn Moser, Soraya Reyes, Shara Cota and Faith Palmer.
