Nave 6th In Nation At National 4-H Poultry and Egg Conference

Congratulations to Hannah Nave, 11th grade Cannon County High School, for winning 1st place individual at the Tennessee 4-H Outdoor Meat Cookery Contest and placing 6th in the nation for the 4-H chicken barbeque contest at the National 4-H Poultry and Egg Conference. The National 4-H Poultry and Egg Conference continues to be held at the North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE) in Louisville, Kentucky. This is the world’s largest all-breed, purebred livestock exposition. The National Conference replaced what was known as the Interstate Invitational 4-H Poultry Judging Contest which started in 1929, running annually through 1964. Hence, this 4-H event – National 4-H Poultry & Egg Conference – in one form or another, has been operating for well over 80 years.
After competing with the other Outdoor Meat Cookery team members in Lebanon at the Central Region in August and then Knoxville for the State Contest, Hannah had the opportunity to compete at the National 4-H Chicken BBQ Contest. The chicken and turkey barbeque contests involve skills in barbecuing, preparation of a product, and a presentation that demonstrates knowledge of the subject. Competing against 11 other states, Hannah represented Tennessee proudly as she tied for first in presentation and second in cooking skills. Cannon County 4-H is proud to have not only a state winning Outdoor Meat Cookery Team but two state high school individuals and now one national competitor.  Congratulations to Hannah Nave for placing 6th at the National 4-H Chicken BBQ Contest!
