In the intermediate category are Halle Klapprich, Aliyah Pineda and Mary Kate Forsmann. Senior honorees include Lindsey Goeckner, Gabriel Forsmann, Hunter Connolley and Sydney Andrews.

Emphasis for the award includes overall achievement, leadership and citizenship. This year’s Idaho County Volunteer Leaders Distinguished Service Award went to Hold Your Horses 4-H Club horse project leader Sharon Blackmer of Grangeville.
