Three local students represented McCreary Co. at the Kentucky Youth Seminar

These three McCreary Central High School students recently represented McCreary County at the Kentucky Youth Seminar. The seminar is sponsored by the University Of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment and the Kentucky Council of Cooperatives.
These three students earned their way to the three day conference by participating in the local American Private Enterprise Seminar presented by the McCreary County Cooperative Extension Service. The local program was sponsored by United Cumberland Bank, McCreary County Chamber of Commerce and SKRECC.
While at the conference the youth participated in numerous educational programs and was in competition for prize money and scholarships.
One change to the program this year was incorporating the National Program into the State Program. This brought participants in from Oregon, Virginia, Tennessee and South Carolina. A total of ninety six youth participated in the program.
The young men represented McCreary County very well.
Lucas took second place overall and earned a $900 Scholarship, took first place in Combined Local and State scores, first place in Individual Testing, and was on a first place Board.
Andrew earned a $600 scholarship, second place in Individual Testing, took third in Combined Local and State scores, and was on a third place Board.
