4-H Clover

At N.C. Cooperative Extension, 4-H Youth Development strives to equip young people with the knowledge and skills they need to become successful adults. Effective communications and public speaking skills are vital for youth as they develop into tomorrow’s leaders. The 2021 District  competition was conducted virtually, so participants mastered several new technologies and skills, in order to prepare and present their 5-12 minute presentation for judging.

Currituck County had eleven 4-H’ers submit their presentations in the Northeast District Presentation competition, which had a total of 94 presenters from the 22 counties in the District and all eleven brought home a medal.

Ashton Lowe,  Gold Medal for “Understanding the United Nations”  in the 14-18 year old Citizenship & Community Service category.

Cayden Lowe, Gold Medal for “Coming Back with Confidence” in the 14-18 year old Horse Public Speaking category.

Gabriel Campbell, Gold Medal for “The Engineering Design Process” in the 14-18 year old Science & Technology category.

Megan Armstrong, Gold Medal for “Corolla Wild Horses” in the 14-18 year old Forestry and  Wildlife category.

Emerson Page, Silver Medal for “Pamper Your Pony” in the 11-13 year old Horse Category

Carsyn Sawyer, Gold Medal for “What Horses Mean To Me” in the 11-13 year old Horse Public Speaking category.

Elijah Campbell, Gold Medal for “What Makes a Great Video Game”, in the 11-13 year old Digital Reality category.

Riley Newsham, Gold Medal for “Planting & Growing Apple Trees” in the 11-13 year old Horticulture Science category.

Evan Bedsole, Gold Medal for “Grilled Honey Sriracha Chicken” in the 11-13 year old Outdoor Cooking-Chicken category.

Caleb Minton, Gold Medal for “How to Tackle Your Tackle Box” in the 8-10 year old Fisheries and Aquatic Environment category.

Karleigh Meads, Gold Medal for “From Caterpillar to Butterfly” in the  8-10 year old Entomology category. 

By virtue of their place in the District competition, all 11 Currituck presenters qualified to present in the State 4-H Public Speaking Competition to be held the last week of July. 

Congratulations to all of these outstanding Currituck County 4-H’ers and thanks to all the parents, volunteers, and staff, who helped these young people succeed and achieve. This annual public speaking contest is open to all Currituck County youth.
