4-H Pumpkin Growing Spotlight

Congratulations to Andrew and Aubrey Devillier on completing this project. This was not an easy task. Andrew and Aubrey are our Parish Winner for the largest pumpkin weighing in at 42lbs , 39 lbs, smallest at .2 lbs, most unique, and best records! 4-H members were given the opportunity to grow their own pumpkins to compete in a statewide contest.

With a little help from other 4-H Youth Development Professionals and Dr. Fontenot’s team, the pumpkin contest took off with approximately 600 4-H members from 46 parishes participating

We continue to wait the state results.
