Liberty County 4-H members presented demonstrations on a variety of topics March 17 during the Cloverleaf District Project Achievement in Alma.
Eleven Cloverleaf 4-Hers in fifth and sixth grades competed against 355 other students from 16 other counties. Topics presented included including baseball, jellyfish, iPads, skinks and menu planning.
The 4-H members who participate in project achievement present a four- to six-minute demonstration about any topic that interests them. Students gather information, write speeches and create posters that complement the key points of their speeches.

• Jonathan Adams, Taylor’s Creek Elementary — First place, sports
• Savannah Groves, Liberty Elementary — Eighth place, general science
