Five Cobb County 4-H students competed at the State 4-H Congress in Atlanta from July 24-27.

The State 4-H Congress is the statewide public speaking and interview competition for 4-H’ers across Georgia.

Cobb County competitors included Dabirichi Chukwuezi, an 11th grade student from Pebblebrook High School in the General Recreation project; Chantal Cyrier, a 10th grade student of Harrison High School in the Performing Arts Instrumental project; Kennedy Deveaux, an 11th grade student of Campbell High School in the Computer Information Technology project; Israel Farrow, an 11th grade Home School student in the Food Safety and Preservation project; and Rebekah Glover, a 10th grade student at Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School in the Communication project.

Glover took top honors statewide in the Communications project, earning her master 4-H status in the Communications project and a national 4-H trip later this year.

Kennedy placed third in the state competing in her project area.

The 4-H’ers began the competition in January where each submitted a portfolio or resume that included leadership, community service and project work in each of their respective project areas.

In March, students competed at Northwest District 4-H Project Achievement for the presentation portion of the competition. Each of these 4-H’ers earned top honors at the district level, advancing them to the state competition. The students were accompanied to State Congress by 4-H Agent Brittani Lee.
