Bibb County 4-H Fall Round-Up Contest

The Bibb County 4-H Fall Round-Up Contest held Tuesday, November 13 at the Brent Senior Center gave Bibb County 4-Hers the chance to compete in numerous categories such as Photography, Chicken-Cue, Blocks Rock!, Baking, Freestyle and other categories.  Youth contestants and winners shown here, L-R holding certificates, are: Chloe Chandler-Freestyle (colored pencil drawing); Ivy Weigandt-Baking; Gavin Weigandt-Blocks Rock!; and Peyton Albert-Baking.  All four (4) youth have the opportunity as 1st or 2nd place finishers to compete in the 4-H Regional Round-Up for central Alabama in Spring 2019.   We are extremely thankful for the contest judges, L-R behind the youth contestants: Megan Johnson-Bibb County Master Gardener; Charlotte Dodson-Bibb County Master Gardener; and Kalee Vernon-Bibb County 4-H Volunteer.  Not shown is contest judge and Bibb County Extension Coordinator Matt Hartzell.  Bibb County 4-H Foundation Agent Simon Carbone (back right) was the Round-Up organizer and facilitator.  The Bibb County Extension Office thanks the City of Brent and Senior Center Director Wanda Holder for hosting monthly Bibb County 4-H meetings at the Center—usually on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 6pm.
