Around 250 youth and adults will gather at the Crown Plaza Ravinia in Atlanta to compete with the best of the best at the 67th annual 4-H State Congress, and Effingham County’s own Ben Snooks will be among them. State Congress is the crown jewel of Georgia 4-H’s Project Achievement competitions.
“These students represent the best of the best of Georgia 4-H,” said Roger “Bo” Ryles, director of the Georgia 4-H program. “Only those students who are the most prepared and dedicated to hard work advance from district competition to state competition.”
Snooks has competed in Project Achievement since the fifth grade and this will be his third honor at the state level event.
He is the son of Tommy and Debbie Snooks of Springfield.
