Every summer 4-H members from across North Carolina convene in Raleigh to participate in the 4-H State Presentations competition held at North Carolina State University. At this year’s event, there were over 365 presenters representing approximately eighty counties.

In order to reach the state competition, each 4-H member must receive a gold or silver, depending on the category and age group, at the district competition. In preparation for presentations, participants select a topic of interest that falls into one of several categories. The categories include animal science, citizenship and civic education, communication and expressive art, family and consumer science, environmental science, healthy lifestyles, personal development, and science and technology. 4-H presentations helps individuals build confidence and learn the skill of public speaking, which is a terrifying experience for many people.

This year, we had five 4-H members, from the Clover Creators 4-H Club located in Siler City, compete in the district competition, and all five were invited to participate in the state competition. However, only four were able to compete due to a scheduling conflict. For three of the four competitors, this was their first time participating in a state 4-H competition, which is a big accomplishment in itself. Abigail Molina-Bacho and Avery Wright both competed in the environmental science category, and each won gold for their respective age group. Zva Rodriguez competed in the citizenship and civic education category, winning silver for her age group. Santos Vazquez-Quiquiuix competed in the environmental science category, and finished in fourth place. Congratulations to all four 4-H members on a job well done!
