The 77th Annual State 4-H Congress was held in Atlanta on July 23-26 at the Crowne Plaza Ravinia Hotel. Emanuel County was represented by ten 4-H’ers. During the event, 4-H’ers competed against other district winners in their respective project areas. Additionally, students attended educational and donor tours.
Winners were announced at the Six Flags theme park, which is a long-standing tradition for State 4-H Congress. New Master 4-H’er and project winner in the Food for Health and Sports Project was Savannah Reynolds. Placing second were Esmeralda Hernandez in Arts & Crafts, Josie Drake in Public Speaking, and Arham Shah in Textiles, Merchandising & Interiors. Third place winners were Blake McBride in Physical, Biological & Earth Science and Madison Moore in Engineering & Mechanics. Also competing at the state level were Grace McBride in Festive Foods for Health, Marshall Amerson in Food Fare, Rebecca Fordham in Dog Care and Training, and Andy Martin in the Communiations Project. Jakyn Tyson and T’Neil Williams served as the chaperones for state congress, and Kimberly Rios attended as an incoming state board member.
