Emma Hauprich, 13, Weatherford, TX
I am currently 13 years old and live in Weatherford, TX. I was born in Aviano, Italy, and am finishing up my 7th-grade year at Springtown Middle School. I was just recently elected President of the Springtown 4-H Club after just finishing a term as Vice President. My main 4-H project to this point has been showing lambs at the market and breeding shows for 5 years now, and I also raise some of my own show lambs. My other 4-H projects include Archery, Entomology, Food and Nutrition, S.T.E.M, and the Baked Foods Show. I am looking into branching out to show other species of animals as well.
To this point, my greatest accomplishments have been placing my lambs 5th and 12th at the Houston Livestock Show, winning Reserve Grand Champion Family Living Project at the Hood County Stock Show, finishing top 5 in the fine wool division in the Texas Best Show Series, winning Showmanship at county with my lamb, and having the 3rd place insect collection in the state-level Entomology contest.
My fondest memories to this point have been all of the community service projects, from helping clean flower beds and yards for local businesses to helping build book boxes for the local library, and then helping all of the younger 4-H'ers.
