Local 4-H members vie for state berth
BRISTOL — Northwest Regional 4-H Day in Bristol provided an opportunity for many of the region’s most talented 4-H’ers to demonstrate what they’ve learned through 4-H club and project work.
The venue for the April 14 event, sponsored by University of Vermont Extension 4-H, was Mount Abraham Union High School. The 74 participants represented 15 clubs in Addison, Chittenden, Franklin and Grand Isle counties.
In addition to winning ribbons, entries in several categories — including action exhibits, public speaking and photography — were selected for 4-H State Day, slated for May 12 in Barre. That event will feature outstanding 4-H’ers from throughout Vermont.
The following entries from Addison County were selected for 4-H State Day:
PHOTOGRAPHY: Bethany Palmer, Weybridge.
POSTER: Isabelle Gilley, Bristol; Audrey Huston, Waltham; Amelia, Calvin, Tucker and Wyatt Kennett, all from Middlebury; Brailey Livingston and Dylan Mason, New Haven; Emma Reen, Bristol.
