Lawrence County youth compete in 4-H State Competition

Corey Naylor placed third on the state level for his autograph collection in the 2019 4-H Competitive Events Day. 

Lawrence County 4-H students Corey Naylor and Kalyn Nelson were awarded on the state level for their participation in Competitive Events Day on July 25 at the 4-H Center in Columbiana, Alabama. 

Nelson won first place in the Woodworking category for her table entry. Naylor placed third in the Freestyle Demo category after entering his collection of autographs, County Extension Coordinator Donna Shanklin said. 

4-H registration is now open and accepting new members ages 9 to 18-years-old, she added. 

“We have clubs active in several schools, but there are also several community clubs,” said Shanklin. “The Community Clubs include a Horse Club, Shotgun Club, and Robotics Club. We are always looking for adult volunteers to help work with youth and to start new clubs.”

She said volunteers can get involved in several ways. Some may choose to give a presentation or provide a project proposal, while others may decide to volunteer for several projects. Volunteers can also help out by assisting with monthly meetings.

Interested participants can view available 4-H programs on the Alabama Cooperative Extension’s web site at

The 4-H office is located at 13075 Alabama Highway 157 in Moulton, inside the Agriculture Center Building. 

For more information or to volunteer, call the Lawrence County Extension Office at 256-974-2464.
