SEAVILLE – Kate Washart, 19, of Seaville, recently competed at the Eastern National 4-H Horse Roundup Contest in Louisville, Ky. She placed seventh nationally in the Individual Presentation Phase of the competition.

The New Jersey 4-H Presentations Team scored eighth place overall.

In order to qualify for the prestigious national competition, the 4-H teens won their respective contests at the state level.

Washart is studying biology and chemistry at Washington College in Chestertown, Md.

“4-H taught me to be a good public speaker and to have the confidence to present myself in front of a large group,” she said. “As a 4-H member I got to travel all over the country and learn so much. I am very grateful for my years in 4-H and for all the friends I made.”

The county 4-H is looking for volunteer leaders. For more information or to volunteer, call Cape May County 4-H agent Julie Karavan at 465-5115, ext. 610.
