Gracie Sikes, a Hamilton County 4-H club member in the sixth grade, competed in the 2020 sub-regional 4-H Achievement Contest held in May. Her 4-H project is photography.
"Gracie was awarded first place in both the portfolio and the interactive exhibit portions of the competition," officials said, "Since she received the highest combined score in photography in both the portfolio and interactive exhibit, she also received the Premier 4-H Award.
"Her portfolio is reflective of her work in her project area along with leadership and citizenship activities conducted throughout the year. Her exhibit highlighted her increased skills and knowledge in the area of photography. As youth advance in their portfolios there are opportunities for college scholarships in the senior high levels."
The 4-H achievement annual competition is open to all Hamilton County residents in grades six through eight who are enrolled in 4-H.
There is no cost to join 4-H, and you can join at any time. For more information, visit the UT & TSU Extension – Hamilton County website at Hamilton.Tennessee.edu or call the Extension office at 423-855-6113.
