DeKalb County was well represented at the State 4-H Roundup/All-Star Conference held recently at the University of Tennessee at Martin. Roundup is a state high school level event for 4-H members competing in project areas. To get to this level, 4-Hers must complete a portfolio and be one of five state finalists. At Roundup, they are required to do an interview along with a project display or resume.

Elizabeth Sanders, a senior at DeKalb County High School, received the Level II Goat project award. Kayley Green, a sophomore, received the Level I Food, Health, and Fitness project award. Hailey Perry, a senior, received the Family and Consumer Science Leadership award. These three 4-Hers received a trip to the National 4-H Congress to be held later this year. Also, Cassie Cain, a sophomore, competed in the Level I Veterinary Science project. Matthew Cain, a senior, competed in the Level II Veterinary Science project.

State elections are also held while at Roundup. We are very proud that two DeKalb County 4-Hers were elected to state positions. Elizabeth Sanders was re-elected as the State 4-H Council Member-At-Large for the second year in a row. Hailey Perry was elected as the State 4-H All-Star Scribe.

Another major event that occurs while at 4-H Roundup is the Vol State ceremony. Vol State is the highest level of recognition a Tennessee 4-H member may achieve. Vol State is presented to high school juniors and seniors in recognition of excellence in all phases of 4-H work, as well as service and leadership rendered in their communities.

We are proud that 4-Hers Hailey Perry, Elizabeth Sanders, and Matthew Cain were presented with the Vol State Award.
