The Sedalia store received Reserve Grand Champion, second place Regional, District, and Class Champion award for the Paper Clover promotion. Paper Clover awards are based on store performance for the number of transactions that included a Paper Clover.
Reserve Grand Champion is given to the Tractor Supply Company store for having the highest transaction percentage for Paper Clovers in its region. Regional Champion is given for having one of the top five highest transaction percentages in its region. District Champion is given for having the highest transaction percentage in its district. Class Champion is given for achieving at least 15 percent transaction percentage and raising a minimum of $300 for Paper Clover donations.
The store received ribbons, certificates, and a plaque for the awards as well. The Paper Clover Campaign is a nationwide, in-store fund-raiser that benefits 4-H programming in the communities where a TSC store is located.
The spring campaign raised over $500,000 that supports 4-H on the local, state, and national level. During the 12-day promotion, which ran May 8 – 19, the Sedalia TSC raised $1076 for 4-H, of which 60 percent goes to the local 4-H program.
Benton County Searcher’s 4-H Club received $646 for helping with the Missouri Spring 2013 Paper Clover promotion. The Benton and Pettis County 4-H Program is supervised by Kay Sparks, 4-H Youth Specialist at the University of Missouri Extension.
