On Saturday, February 4, thirty-six Gordon County 4-H’ers in grades 4-6 competed in the Project Achievement Competition at Georgia Highlands College, assisted by nine teen leaders. Project Achievement is a public speaking competition where students pick a project area of interest, research the topic, write a 4-6 minute presentation, create posters and other visual aids to go with the presentation, and then present the project to others. In competition, there are over 60 different project categories, most of which include oral presentations, though some 4-H’ers competed in special presentations in the performing arts categories of instrumental, vocal, and dance, and in the food preparation category. Gordon County 4-H received the honor of highest percentage of 1st place winners!

Zack Mulkey - Dairy and Milk Science - 1st place
Thomas Spruell - General Recreation - 4th place
