Local students compete to move on to 4-H regionals

The annual Johnson County 4-H County Demonstration and Table Top Exhibit Contest was held Tuesday, April 17th at Mountain City Elementary. This years’ event proved to be a success as contestants from across Johnson County presented their demonstrations and exhibits. 4th and 5th grade demonstrations ranged from creating a video to making slime. The 6th graders presented table top exhibits which showcased a wide range of project work including technology, engineering, line and design and more.

All of the contestants earning a blue award ribbon & 1st place may advance to the regional competition on April 26th at Hancock high school in Sneedville. In addition to the wonderful demonstrations and exhibits, the 2018 county poster design winners were also recognized. This year the 4-H t-shirt design winner was Zeke Hensley, a 4th grader from Mountain City Elementary. His design features a polar bear with the slogan “Chilling with 4-H”.

The other posters that were chosen to advance to the regional contest were designed by Harris Perkins a 4th grader from Mountain City Elementary and Joshua Ransom a 5th grade Home schooler. Zeke’s poster also received a blue ribbon award at the regional contest. Congratulations to all of our competitors and thanks to all the judges, parents, family and friends who support the contestants and the 4-H program.
