Chatham 4-H Members Compete at District Activity Day Virtually

Pittsboro, N.C. – This year, Chatham County 4-H’ers competed virtually in 4-H District Activity day on June 25, 2020. Chatham County had four youth submit entries competing with 81 youth from across the North Central District. The pre-recorded presentations were submitted online and presented to a panel of judges. During this annual event, the 4-H presentation competition gives 4-H’ers an opportunity to practice public speaking skills while sharing their 4-H projects. Presentations allow youth to develop essential life skills for success in the future in their personal and professional lives.

Stella Goolsby competed in the Senior age division in the Careers and Entrepreneurship category. Stella won a Silver medal for her presentation on “Building a Resume.” Stella has qualified to move forward and compete on the state competition level. Zva Rodriguez also received Silver at district with a presentation in the Junior age division in the Animal Science category focusing on Dairy and Production with her presentation called “MOOVING, My Steps Vs My Cows.” Anna and Joseph Wetherell presented as a team presentation in the Junior age division in the Animal Science Category with a concentration on Dairy and Production. Their presentation was based on their swine 4-H project on “Hog Rotational Farming” and received a Bronze medal.

We are very proud of the hard work our Chatham 4-H’ers put into their presentations this year. Congratulations!
