Paulding County 4-H would like to congratulate all the students that participated in the 2019 District Project Achievement (DPA).
On January 26th, Paulding County Cloverleaf 4-H’ers traveled to Georgia Highlands College in Rome to attend a public speaking competition. At the event, there were 12 counties represented and a total of 579 students in attendance. Cloverleaf Project Achievement is a public speaking competition where 4th-6th-grade students select a topic of interest and give a 5-6 minute informative speech on their chosen subject. Project Achievement helps students improve their public speaking but also writing and presentation skills while learning more about a topic of interest. Paulding County had 54 student representatives attend this event with 26 placing in their program areas.
- 1st Place: 7 students
- 2nd Place: 5 students
- 3rd Place: 14 students
We are very proud of these Paulding County students and that they were able to prepare, practice, and compete this year! We would like to say a big thank you to the parents/guardian who helped support these 4-H’ers as well as the Paulding County 4-H teen leaders and staff that helped make this engaging and rewarding experience happen! Paulding County 4-H'er participation in Cloverleaf DPA is sponsored by Cobb EMC.
