The Unity Foundation of La Porte Presented the annual Clarence Weinkauff, Jr. award winner. This year The Weinkauff Family celebrated 20 years of presenting the award. The Clarence Weinkauff, Jr. Grant Fund promotes the 4-H swine program and the breeding of swine in La Porte County. Each year, the fund awards a $500 grant to a 4-H member to reward the extra effort and passion that goes along with breeding and raising swine – even if the livestock does not win the competition. Students apply for the award through an essay submitted to the local 4H extension office prior to the fair. This year’s award was presented to Mitchell Brown, a 10 year participant in the La Porte County Fair Swine Project. For more information, please visit or call 219-879-0327.
