Sampson County 4-H had 10 youth represent the county at District Activity Day at Lenoir Community College in Kinston.

District Activity Day is comprised of 4-H members who compete in presentations which vary from public speaking, demonstrations and illustrated talks. Out of 18 counties in the Southeast District, Sampson County participants earned a total of three gold medals, two silver and two bronze for their presentations.

The participants were recognized by Sampson County School officials for their accomplishments for their 2016 presentations.

“We are looking forward to having representation at the State 4-H Presentations Contest at NCSU in Raleigh in July,” extension officials stated in a news release.
