Congratulations to our CBCJ Team!
Our Cotton Boll/Consumer Judging Team competed at the Regional competition here in Perry on November 5. Both our Junior and Senior Team won first place. Our Junior team consisted of all new Judgers who were only in the 4th, 5th and 6th grades and were competing against 7th and 8th graders!
Rabun Perdue & Sophia Maddux were both high individuals for the Junior Teams and Victoria Day was High Individual in every contest for the Senior Division. Our Senior team will go on to compete at the State competition in December at Rock Eagle.
A special thank you to the team coach, Kellie Day for her hard work and dedication to our team. Also a big thank you to Amelia Day, the assistant coach, for being there when Mrs. Kellie could not be there to coach. We are so proud of everyone's hard work and determination.
