Macon County 4-H Youth Win at State Presentation Competition

— Written By and last updated by

Each year Macon County 4-Hers test their presentation skills against 4-Her from across the state during West District competition called District Activity Day and during state competition called NC 4-H State Presentation Finals. This summer, due to Covid-19, youth had to prepare their presentations and then submit them by internet to their assigned judges. While this was a new method and experience, our 4-H youth did an outstanding job showing off their skills.

In June, during District competition six 4-Hers competed at the District competition:
Emma Baker placed gold in Entomology

Alisa Campbell and Abby Young place bronze in Environmental Science

Shelby Cyphers placed silver in Egg Cookery

Rose Mutz place gold in the Open category

Sara Young placed gold in Environmental Science

In July, four youth went on to present at the state level where 312 youth competed:

Emma Baker placed silver in Entomology

Shelby Cyphers placed silver in Egg Cookery

Rose Mutz place silver in the Open category

Sara Young placed gold in Environmental Science

Congratulations to all of these 4-Hers and their hard work preparing. 4-H is North Carolina’s largest youth development organization, equipping more than 262,200 young people each year with the skills to succeed and improve the world around them. 4-H programs and camps encourage young people to “learn by doing,” helping them to develop into active, contributing citizens. NC State Extension and the Cooperative Extension Program at N.C. A&T State University coordinate 4-H programs statewide
