Tractor Supply Store Wins Awards from 4-H

Machias, Maine – The Tractor Supply Company (TSC) store in Calais was recently recognized with two awards for its outstanding performance during this year’s 4-H/TSC Paper Clover Campaign. The store received the District Champion Award for the highest transaction percentage for Paper Clover donations in its district. Also awarded was the Class Champion Award for achieving at least a 20% transaction percentage and raising a minimum of $300 for Paper Clover donations. 

The 4-H/TSC Paper Clover Campaign is a nationwide, in-store fundraiser that benefits 4-H programming in the communities where a TSC store is located. The spring 2014 campaign was a very successful promotion, raising over $787,000 that will support 4-H at the local, state, and national levels.  The funds raised have provided direct support for local camps, after-school programs and other activities, and has granted scholarships to these events so youth can explore their interests in everything from animal science to robotics. For more information on the 4-H program, contact your local University of Maine Cooperative Extension office.
