2019 Carolyn Krug Memorial Essay Contest!!

2019 Carolyn Krug Memorial Essay Contest

The winners will be awarded a market hog to be taken as a project and shown at the Stark County Fair in 2019. The pigs will be donated by the Krug Family and will be ready for the exhibitors in the spring, sometime in May.  Any 4-H member may participate if they will be enrolled with a club for 2019 and this year is either their 1st year taking a swine project, or a member that this is their last year in 4-H and are taking a swine project.

Two individuals will be chosen.

To Enter the contest, the exhibitor must write an essay outlining why they would like to take a swine project, as well as what housing and feed arrangements they will have. Include in the essay your name, age, phone number, number of years you have been involved in 4-H, previous projects taken, and any other information you feel is important and/or interesting. Be creative! Think about what may make your essay stand out from others. The essay may be hand written or typed and may include artwork.


Parents/Guardian MUST sign at the bottom of the essay confirming they would be able to receive the pig, take care of the pig properly as far as housing and feed requirements, and they agree to overseeing the project. The child is responsible to complete the project by attending QA, skill-a-thon and showing the pig at the Stark County Fair this year.


Our family is looking for individuals who show enthusiasm and interest in owning and raising a pig and who is able to provide proper care and adequate housing for a swine project. When planning for housing and fencing needs, remember that the pig will be around 40-70 lbs in May and around 240-270 lbs upon completion of the project.

Essays are due by March 1, 2019. The family will be meeting the first week of March and the winners will be notified by phone. All others will be sent a letter by mail. If you win, be sure you sign up for the project with your club.

Mail your essay to:

The Krug Family
1250 Glenway NW
North Lawrence, OH 44666

This is the second year for this program and we hope to continue it in memory of Carolyn Krug for years to come. To help make this possible, it is suggested a percentage of the sale of your project be donated back to the fund.

If you have any questions, call Randy at 330-265-9322 or Scott at 330-465-3628.

Carolyn and Bob Krug were long time supporters of 4-H and everything that 4-H stands for. They were on the swine committee for 45+ years. Their five children all showed swine, their six grandchildren all showed swine and now their great grandchildren are beginning to show swine. All also took various other projects too. They were both dedicated and committed to making 4-H and the swine program a positive experience for all exhibitors.

If we can help the exhibitor in any way, we will be more than happy to do so. We want this to be a successful, positive experience and fun for the exhibitors.
