Polk County 4-H made a great showing at 4-H District Activity Day in Cullowhee, N.C.
Eleven local children participated in the West District Activity Day. Every 4-H’er who participated received a medal for their accomplishments.
Polk had seven gold medal winners, three silver medal winners and one bronze medal winner.
“We are excited about how well our kids performed at District Day,” said Helen Clark, Polk County 4-H Program Assistant. “Our 4-H’ers worked hard on their presentations and now we hope they will excel on the state level.”
North Carolina 4-H sponsors six district competitions across the state. Children who attend participate in public speaking competitions otherwise known as 4-H presentations.
4-H youth from Polk County participate against other 4-H’ers from the western 17 counties. 4-H participants who received either gold or silver medals can continue their competition on the state level at NC State University in July.
The Polk County winners included the following:
• Gold – Rick Burney, Phil Burney, Abbie Jennings, Kaylie Jennings, Bradley Kay, Carson Kay and Alina Kolberg
• Silver: Gabrielle Clark, Larry Dyer and Katie Spurling
• Bronze: Jessica Spurling.
