2019 4-H Horse Quiz Bowl Results
The Thomas County 4-H Horse Quiz Bowl Teams recently traveled to Morgan County in north Georgia for the 2019 State Competition. Teams from throughout Georgia came to participate in the day long event. The double elimination contest is made up of questions pertaining to equine science and other horse related topics. Pairs of four-person teams compete against each other responding to questions asked by a contest moderator. Each team is given credit for correct answers, and in some cases a penalty for incorrect answers. The team with the highest score at the end of the contest is declared the winner. The team start practice 4 months before they go to compete. Thomas County took a Junior Team and a Senior Team to compete this year. The Senior Team was made up of Team Captain Allie Ann Wheeler, Hannah Lamb, Je’Niece Manning and Douglas Hopkins. Wheeler was named Most Valuable Player. The Junior Team was made up of Team Captain Kristen Anderson, Anna Argo, Paisley Hurst, Hayley Law, Gracee Sloan, Avery Turnbull and Nevaeh Sloan. The Junior Team finished 3rd in the state and Hayley Law was named Most Valuable Player. Thomas County 4-H Agent Cindy Wynn coached both teams.
