When the North Carolina 4-H announced their annual photography contest in June, 9-year-old member Jenny Buchanan decided to enter. The contest offered three categories to choose from: 4-H in Action, Pets in Action and Nature’s Beauty.

Buchanan, a homeschooler who has been involved with 4-H for two years, chose to submit a picture to the Nature’s Beauty category. Photos were judged on their relevance to the category topic, their composition, focus and sharpness and lighting.

When winners were announced in August, Buchanan discovered that her photo of local attraction Pearson Falls had received fourth place in the Junior Division of the statewide contest for her category.
