We are also very excited to announce that next year’s Lincoln Parish 4-H Talent Contest will be held at the Dixie Center for the Arts. We are looking so forward to our youth having the opportunity to perform their talents on an actual historical theater stage.
Lincoln Parish will also be represented in the State Fair of Louisiana 4-H Nutrition Quiz Bowl. Our Lincoln Parish teen 4-H members have formed a five member team to compete in this State Fair of Louisiana 4-H Quiz Bowl Competition. The members of the Lincoln Parish 4-H Nutrition Quiz Bowl team are Jamillia White from Choudrant High School, and Zoria Findley, Brynna Hooper, Aubrey Simmons, and Abigail Simmons form Ruston High School.
The youth involved in these 4-H events are brave and courageous. By participating in these 4-H events, they are learning vital life skills. They are working very hard preparing and studying. The talent contest participants have been practicing. The quiz bowl teams are holding practice sessions, studying publications and study guides to prepare for their competitions. We are very proud of our Lincoln Parish 4-H Youth. Please join us in congratulating them on their efforts, accomplishments and well deserved recognition.
