GLENWOOD CITY — Hilltopper junior Jacob Schurtz really does not understand what all the fuss is about.

“I thought it was an OK picture,” he said about a photo his mother entered in a national 4-H art contest. “But I can’t figure out why everyone is making such a big deal about it.”

The photo Schurtz is talking about is one his mother, Carole, submitted to the National 4-H Youth Art Calendar for consideration as one of the pieces of art to be included in the 2018 edition.
