Each year, county reporters are selected from each county from the pool of delegates to Tennessee 4- H Congress. Upon their arrival to Congress, the reporters go through training on how to write and report their Congress story. The goal is for each reporter to submit an article to their local newspaper and/or to make a presentation back home in order to share their experiences of Tennessee 4-H Congress with their local communities, donors and stakeholders.
Reporters are asked to email the news article and/or presentation that they created to the state 4-H office by June 1. Each entry/name was submitted into a drawing. The name selected wins a $50 4-H gift basket for his/her efforts.
Congratulations to Caraline Rogers, Chester County 4-H member and 2019 4-H Congress delegate! Her name was drawn from all of the entries. She will receive a $50 4-H gift basket. Many thanks to the 4-H agents who encouraged and worked with their county reporters to make this happen! These articles will be used as examples to help train next year’s group of county reporters at the 2020 Tennessee 4-H Congress.
