Smith County 4-H Competes in Clover Bowl

May 19, 2023

The Central Region 4-H Clover Bowl Contest was held on May 16, 2023, at Hyder-Burks Ag Pavilion in Cookeville. Three teams of Smith County 4-H’ers competed.

This event tests 4th through 8th grade students on their knowledge of subjects like 4-H, agriculture, government, life skills, science, and Tennessee history. The Clover Bowl consists of three- or four-member teams competing in a double elimination, quiz bowl-style tournament format. 41 teams from 15 Middle Tennessee counties competed.

Members of the 4th grade team were Clay Driver, Aubrey Hicks, Charlotte Driver, and Marshall Taylor. Representing 7th grade was Alex Asbury, Everett Keys, Joshua Massey, and Noah Massey. The 8th grade team was made up of Marshall Apple, Julion Dillon, Noah Smith, and Eric Shaw.

Each of these teams studied for weeks, putting time and effort into this contest, and they represented Smith County 4-H exceptionally well against some tough competition! We would especially like to thank Mrs. Jill Huddleston and Ms. Amanda Thompson of Forks River Elementary for helping organize these teams!
