Cherokee 4-H wins project record book awards 

by May 21, 2019COMMUNITY sgadugi


Every year, 4-H members have the opportunity to create a project record book reflecting the work they have accomplished in a 4-H project.  These books serve as a way to teach youth the importance of record keeping.  The best books from the EBCI (Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians) 4-H program were sent to compete against the rest of the West District (21 far western counties and the Qualla Boundary) recently.

Winners are chosen in a specific 4-H project category and coordinating age group.  The district winners for the 2018 competition year were:

* Ogana Swimmer, 3rd place in 9-10 Citizenship and Civic Education

* Anasette ‘Agasga’ Cooper, 2nd place in 9-10 Environmental and Natural Resources

* Cameron ‘Tsawayugi’ Jackson, 3rd place in 9-10 Environmental and Natural Resources

* Tyce ‘Aquatega’ Hogner, 3rd place in 11-12 Environmental and Natural Resources
