Chattooga County 4H students were among about 700 other students from across North Georgia yesterday at Georgia Highlands College for district competition. 

Chattooga County Cooperative Extension Agent told AM 1180 that the students were presenting a variety of projects for the competition.  Thomas said that the competition proves that 4H is "more than just cows, pigs and chickens.  These students are learning skills that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives."

Members of 4-H clubs from Floyd, Bartow, Carroll, Catoosa, Chattooga, Dade, Gordon, Haralson, Murray, Polk, Walker and Whitfield counties all took part in the day of events, which included 65 different project ranging from performing arts to and public speaking to pet care and food nutrition presentations.
