PLACE SECOND — Senior high Obion County 4-Hers recently participated in the State 4-H Wildlife Judging Contest. Teams from all over Tennessee gathered to compete in this contest, which was held at Buck Creek in Crossville. The Obion County 4-H Wildlife Judging Team placed second at the Regional level in order to compete at the state level. During the contest, 4-Hers worked to identify wildlife, identify wildlife management practices unique to individual species and prescribe on-site wildlife management recommendations. The wildlife project is designed to teach 4-H youth about the fundamentals of wildlife science and management. Natural resources management is learned through participation in the event and other associated programs. Additional benefits come from the development of leadership capabilities and meeting other young people and professionals. The senior high team includes (from left) Nancy Davis, Mary Helen Driver and Jo Hamilton, all Obion County Central High School students.
