The Junior High 4-H Academic Conference recently took place in a one-day format and was taught by university faculty, staff and Extension specialists from four universities across the state.

The delegates submitted applications and were chosen based on their 4-H project work.

The Macon County 4-H delegates Hudson West in the wildlife and fisheries project, Jayden Hesson in the veterinary science project, and Trinity Nash in the poultry project. That trio attended Tennessee Technological University.

Logan West attended Middle Tennessee State University and participated in the food science project.

This academic confernence brings together 4-H members in different projects and provides youth with the opportunity to learn more about their 4-H project by doing hands-on activities and by participating in live demonstrations, games, and college tours.
