Georgia 4-H hosted a virtual series to announce and honor youth winners in replacement of its annual State 4-H Congress, normally a weeklong competition and celebration in Atlanta. The online series allowed Georgia 4-H to announce all the winners live, similar to the in-person festivities which have been held annually since 1942.During the 2019 State Congress, more than 250 youth competed at the state level of Georgia 4-H’s Project Achievement contest. The event also honored state special event winners, scholarship winners and donors. The purpose of this event is to celebrate the Georgia 4-H youth for their project work, leadership and service.“Our top priority for the culmination of this year’s Project Achievement program was to find a way for the youth to compete for the state title of ‘Master 4-H’er’ while observing safety precautions,” said Keri Hobbs, University of Georgia Cooperative Extension 4-H specialist. “Pivoting the statewide competition to a virtual format was necessary for youth to continue to sharpen their skills and for us to name state project winners. Key alterations were that presentations were recorded for judges to evaluate through videos and portfolio, and interview judges joined youth online for virtual interviews.”This year, all the essential components from State 4-H Council and Congress were combined into the Georgia 4-H 2020 State Achievement Series. The five-day series included the campaigns and election of new state officers, state-level competitions and announcements of winners in Leadership in Action and Project Achievement.The Leadership in Action program is designed to recognize the work of 4-H’ers as leaders in their communities. These 4-H’ers have identified issues or needs in their community and have developed and implemented ways to make a difference. Eight finalists were selected to compete on the state level. The 2020-21 4-H Leadership in Action winners who received Master 4-H’er status are Amelia Sale from Oconee County, for her project focused on connecting youth with special needs and 4-H, and Nicholas McKinley of Paulding County, for his project focused on STEM and its human connection.Nearly 250 youth competing in the state-level Senior Project Achievement were permitted to submit 10- to 12-minute presentations in their various project areas online. Participants also conducted a video interview with judges to discuss their yearlong project. Overall, one winner in each of the 50 project categories was selected as the winner and received Master 4-H’er status during the announcement of winners on July 24.The 2020-21 4-H Project Achievement winners are:Arts and Crafts – Juliette McKinley, Paulding CountyBeef – Tyler Hunter, Bulloch CountyCommunications – Andy Martin, Emanuel CountyCompanion and Specialty Animals – Savannah Hockenberry, Richmond CountyComputer Information Technology – Kennedy Deveaux, Cobb CountyDairy – Morgan Patterson, Jasper CountyDog Care and Training – Sara Reed, Coweta CountyEngineering and Mechanics – Elyce Wages, Spalding CountyEntomology – Kelly Lachowsky, Liberty CountyEnvironmental Science – Jordan Daniels, Tift CountyFashion Revue – Minnes Smith, Polk CountyFinancial Planning and Consumer Economics – Aquemini Trotter, Ben Hill CountyFlowers, Shrubs, and Lawns – Annie Stephenson, Oconee CountyFood for Fitness – Zoe Jane Powell, Stephens CountyFood for Health and Sport – Shazia Alam, Sumter CountyFoods Lab: Dairy Foods – Laura Harriss, Cobb CountyFoods Lab: Festive Foods for Health – Delaney Millerick, Newton CountyFoods Lab: Food Fare – Rebekah Ibbetson, Haralson CountyFood Safety and Preservation – Brecklyn Brown, Chattooga CountyForest Resources and Wood Sciences – James Turpin, Hart CountyFruits, Vegetables and Nuts – Breana Manning, Gordon CountyGeneral Recreation – Dabirichi Chukwuezi, Cobb CountyHealth – Rachel Thigpen, Montgomery CountyHistory – Samantha Kuhbander, Ware CountyHorse – Alexa Hillebrand, Coweta CountyHousing – Lora Coxwell, Worth CountyHuman Development – James Poppell, Toombs CountyInternational – Jhaycee Barnes, Spalding CountyOutdoor Recreation – Madison Clevenger, Paulding CountyPerforming Arts – Dance – Maggie DeMaria, Clarke CountyPerforming Arts – Drama – Lydia Norman, Wilkes CountyPerforming Arts – General – Parker Varnadoe, Madison CountyPerforming Arts – Other Instrumental – Chandler Stevenson, Cherokee CountyPerforming Arts – Piano – Journey Austinson, Decatur CountyPerforming Arts – Vocal – Tripp Carter, Burke CountyPhotography and Videography – Bell Scdoris, Crisp CountyPhysical, Biological and Earth Sciences – Quadriyah Williams, Cobb CountyPlant and Soil Sciences – Jessie Holbrook, Union CountyPoultry – Whitley Gatch, Bulloch CountyPublic Speaking – Madison Clemente, Paulding CountyRobotics – Hannah Fletcher, Worth CountySafety – Paige Phillips, Stephens CountySheep and Meat Goats – Gracie Grimes, Candler CountySports – Emma Harris, Peach CountySwine – Hannah McElrath, Gordon CountyTarget Sports – Jennifer Brinton, Coweta CountyTextiles, Merchandising and Interiors – Arham Shah, Emanuel CountyVeterinary Science – Gabrielle Ralston, Gordon CountyWildlife and Marine Science – Neely McCommons, Oconee CountyWorkforce Preparation and Career Development – Emma Wurst, Columbia CountyAnnually, more than 77,000 youth participate in Georgia 4-H Project Achievement and develop skills in leadership, public speaking, record keeping, creativity and other life skills.The success of these events is a result of efforts that have been invested and skills that have been sharpened in 4-H youth for years.
