You can view the winning entries on the CALS North Carolina 4-H Photo Contest page. The contest is coordinated by CALS Communications at NC State University.

Categories for 2019 include 4-H in Action, Nature’s Beauty and the new category for 2019 (only), Sports. Sports photography is big business! Use your ace photography skills to capture the excitement of the action at a sporting event. Whether it’s on the track or football field, or in the pool, gym or ballpark, we want to see those photographs. Be creative! We will be reasonably all-inclusive as to what can be considered a sporting event, but tiddlywinks might be pushing it a bit. Entries will be due via email in May and all participants must be current 4-H members to participate. Contact April Bowman at or 336-703-2855 for additional information.
