The tournament is named in honor of longtime Weld County residents Paul and Jean Hoshiko. As a youth, Paul was an exemplary 4-H member. During his adult life he was an outstanding supporter of 4-H, including being the president of the Colorado 4-H Foundation board of trustees and a member of the Colorado 4-H Hall of Fame. Paul shared his passion for 4-H with his family and wife Jean, and together they worked tirelessly to “Make the Best Better.” They established the Hoshiko Endowment Fund with the 4-H Foundation to help promote world peace by giving selected 4-H youth the opportunity to travel abroad.
