Each year the Obion County 4-H Program hosts a 4-H Poster contest.
These contests allow 4-Hers to express themselves creatively as well as to display an increase in knowledge of 4-H. Approximately 200 posters were submitted during in-class contests. From these, several posters were selected to compete at the county level.
