Eighteen Cloverleaf students from Effingham County recently participated in the 4-H District Project Achievement competition in Emanuel County.

Project Achievement is a cornerstone program of Georgia 4-H. Cloverleaf (fifth- and sixth-grade) students selected a topic of interest and prepared a four- to six-minute demonstration including visuals to present at the district competition. Presentations were viewed by judges and scored based on subject knowledge, visuals and speech delivery.

“We are extremely proud of the hard work these students put into their presentation,” said Effingham County 4-H agent Abby Smith. “They took extra time to research and write a speech, create posters/visuals to go along with their presentation and practice. The dedication and time they put into their presentation was evident in how well they performed and represented Effingham County 4-H.”

Cloverleaf students who participated were Carson Ash, Raistlin Blanchard, Grace Brantley, Zaniya Brown, Carolyn Edwards, Katie Holland, Abigail Laslie, Benjamin Mincey, Maura Mincey, Bracey Nelems, Destiny Rahn, Madison Richardson, Keosha Rivers, Bella Sapp, Madison Stephens, Matthew Tackitt, Shemar Westbrook and Destini Woodley.

Also attending was a group of 4-H teen leaders from Effingham: Samantha McDuffie, Chance Denny, Rebecca Velezques, Grace Kieffer, Dana Mincey, Bri Treadway and Marci Delcampo.
