BAKER — Baker 4- H Adventurers who participated in the June 22 Florida 4-H Dog Project & Show Day at Ocala’s Southeastern Livestock Pavilion took home a number of awards.

The group represented Okaloosa County by participating in obedience and showmanship classes, the Dog Project Quiz Bowl and a Skill-a-thon.

In the obedience class, Okaloosa County’s Kalysta Laird took second place; Allie Dallas took third place.

OkaloosaCounty’s Lily Smith took second place, and Laird and Dallas took third place in showmanship.

The 4-H Dog Quiz Bowl, which tests members’ dog knowledge, allowed youths enrolled in the 4-H Dog Project to demonstrate their knowledge of dog-related subject matter. Questions tested the contestants’ knowledge of dog conformation and anatomy, canine health, and 4-H and American Kennel Club dog show rules. Two teams of four members competed against each other, with Okaloosa County placing fourth overall in the competition.

The Skill-a-thon was based on individual questions asked of participants, who had to demonstrate a variety of skills based on their age category. Okaloosa County competed in the junior division for ages 8-10, with Laird taking first place and Dallas placing third.
