Sponsored by the Southeast United Dairy Industry Association, Liberty County 4-H hosted its annual MilkMake competition Feb. 20 at the extension office in Hinesville.
MilkMake allows 4-H members to create their own milk-based drink recipes while learning about the nutritional values and versatility of milk.
Students submitted their recipes in writing, and several were chosen to create their drinks for a panel judges.
The recipes were evaluated based on taste, presentation, nutrition, flavor and appeal.
Allahasia Muhammad of Lyman Hall Elementary placed first with her strawberry and blueberry breakfast smoothie.
The sweet banana milk drink by Emma Davis of First Presbyterian Christian Academy placed second.
Tatiana Lee’s strawberry smoothie placed third. She attends Liberty Elementary School.
Judges were 4-H adult volunteer Addison James, 4-H teen leader Destiny LeCounte and 4-H program assistant Gypsy James. James served as the contest coordinator.
