Sequatchie County 4-H Wildlife Judging Teams Compete at Region and State

The Sequatchie County 4-H Senior Wildlife Judging Team recently placed fifth at the State 4-H Wildlife Judging Contest held at Roan Mountain State Park. Team members were Taylor Scott, Eli Hale, Amon Rice and Zach Scott. Zach Scott was recognized as the third high individual scorer at the contest. The team was tested on their knowledge of wildlife, habitat evaluation, and as a team, completed a management plan. As a part of the two-day program the team members also hiked at Carver’s Gap to Round Bald, where they were able to see the unique “bald” habitat of the Southern Appalachians.

 

To qualify for the state contest the Sequatchie County team competed in the Central Region contest held in May, where they placed second overall. Zach Scott was recognized at the Regional contest as the third high individual scorer, Taylor Scott sixth high individual scorer, and Eli Hale as the eighth high individual scorer. Sequatchie County also had Junior and Junior High teams competing at the regional contest. Junior-high team members were Casey Scott, Libby Hendrick, Daniel Scott, Drake Thompson, and Morgan Kilgore. Junior members were Kenny Coulson and David Rice.
