Lincoln County and Henry County competed in an exciting championship round that came down to the last question – Lincoln County earned champion honors.

Team members are Sorrell Martin, Ella Pollock, Matthew George, Olivia Hughes and Colton Moorehead.

This contest consisted of questions from beef, sheep, swine and meat goats. Each round consisted of 20 questions using a buzzer system to buzz in to answer a question.

This is the second year in a row that Lincoln County has won the state contest.

Twelve teams participated in the 2018 Livestock Quiz Bowl held in conjunction with the annual convention of the Tennessee Cattlemen’s Association and Tennessee Dairy Producers Association in Murfreesboro.

Lincoln County will represent Tennessee at the National 4-H Livestock Quiz Bowl Contest at AKSARBEN in Grand Island, Neb., this September.
