N.C. Cooperative Extension of Madison County saw the need regarding the youth of Madison County that were interested in attending the 4-H State Livestock competition to judge livestock, skill-a-thon, and quiz bowl. Given the role of Extension and the interest from the youth, we could help these students reach their goals by providing regular practices as well as organizing their participation in the 4-H State Livestock competition.
A group of five middle school-aged youth expressed interest in learning the basics of livestock judging, skill-a-thon, and quiz bowl. It was determined that practices would be held once a week from March until July taught by Extension as well as the Agriculture Education teacher at the high school. The youth attended practices with a willingness to learn as well as a commitment to attend the 4-H State competition in July.
As a result of their hard work and dedication to practice the team of five placed second in the skill-a-thon in the 4-H State competition in Raleigh. This was a proud moment for Madison County youth to see their hard work and perseverance pay off at their first competition. This opportunity allowed the youth to learn new skills such as healthy competition, teamwork, perseverance, study skills, social skills, and many more. These same youth have decided to continue moving forward with practices to prepare them for the 4-H State competition in 2020.
