2015 Shelby County 4-H Photography Contest Official Results


The Shelby County 4-H Photography contest was held on February 10, 2015 in the Shelby County Courthouse. We had a record number of participants ranked by the age divisions of Senior, Intermediate and Junior and judged in 15 different categories.


The overall winner of the county contest was junior 4-H’er Liela Klein with her photograph entitled “Kneel at the Cross” in the Catch All category.




The next show is at the district level and it will be conducted on April 25, 2015 at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches.  Each youth that entered a photograph at the county level may enter the same photo at the district level, if desired.  Senior age division photographs that placed first at the county level will automatically advance to the state level to be judged. 


The photographs are on exhibit on the first floor of courthouse.  Please stop by and check out the great job these youth did in taking their photographs.


A special thank you to Ms. Charity Arwine for leading the 4-H photography project and for sharing excellent and invaluable photography skills with the 4-H project members.
