Louisville, KY (November 23, 2020) – Ginny Lyle of Franklin County and Brady Lawson of Morgan County were awarded top honors in the Kentucky Farm Bureau 2020 Outstanding Farm Bureau Youth contest.
Lyle and Lawson were selected from 22 district finalists, 11 male and 11 female, out of approximately 350 young people who competed in county and district contests over the past several months.
