Abel Elwell, Delaware Farm Bureau’s New Castle County Young Farmers & Ranchers Committee Chair, wants to land a big one – a kiss on a pig!
He is raising money for Delaware State Fair Junior Exhibitor Scholarships through the annual Kiss the Pig Contest coordinated by the Delaware 4-H Foundation.
The event celebrates fundraising efforts by participants, culminating in an exciting showcase event to be held Thursday, July 27 at 3 p.m. at Hertrich Plaza.
“Our YF&R chapter asked me to step up this year and do it and I am happy to help promote agriculture by supporting the 4-H Foundation,” Elwell said. “I grew up being involved in our county 4-H Dairy Club (in NJ). Through 4-H and other mentors in our 4-H club, this inspired me to get an education in agriculture and now a career. I am happy to pass that on and help others on their path.”
