4-H'ers Work For The Win

Monday, March 4, 2019 - by Mitch Talley

Effective communication skills are frequently highlighted as an essential component of youth positive development as they prepare to enter the workforce.   

On Saturday, Jan. 26, Whitfield County 4-H’ers demonstrated their desire to be successful in their future careers at the 2019 Cloverleaf Northwest District Project Achievement Competition. 

A total of 75 students from 15 schools competed in this annual event held at Georgia Highlands College in Rome. 

These fifth and sixth graders made amazing efforts to demonstrate their exceptional talents, practice their public speaking skills and face their fears of public speaking. 

While some were awarded for placing in the top three of their category, each student was a winner for showing up and sharing their skills at this district competition. 

Recognizing the value of 4-H Project Achievement, some students are already planning their 2020 project.  Seventh to 12th grade 4-H’ers are working on their presentations for their DPA competition in March and look forward to bringing home the win.
