Congratulations to everyone who participated in the judging contests, demonstration contest, archery shoots, horse bowl, and litter barrel contest. We can’t wait to see you represent New Castle County at the State level. Once again, we would like to congratulate all our 4-H seniors this year, we are excited to follow along and watch all the incredible things you will do in the next chapter of life!
