“Keep Calm and Quiz On!” was the motto for a team of four Wilson County 4-H’ers competing June 11 in Nutrition Quiz Bowl during Texas 4-H State Roundup. After 8-1/2 grueling hours of intense competition, they were undefeated and became this year’s Nutrition Quiz Bowl Champions. State Roundup is a weeklong event; qualifying 4-H’ers from all over Texas come together to compete at the state level in the numerous contests that 4-H has to offer.

This quiz bowl team -- consisting of all homeschooled 4-H’ers: Kytheranialynn Fambrough-Brown of Floresville, Sarah Keith of Poth, and Alyssa and Kayla Kopecki of Kosciusko -- qualified for state in January at the District 10 competition. After months of intense studying and preparation, they remained calm and quizzed on for their state victory.

According to their coach, Wendy Kopecki, “When you look at what these four girls just did, it is simply amazing! They were basically a new team having to learn an overwhelming amount of information in mere months. Other teams have been working on this information for years. Because of this, they were at a distinct disadvantage, but their dedication and hard work really paid off. I am extremely proud of each of them.”

The girls all clearly understood it would be an uphill battle in preparing for competition. They came together in true team fashion and are proof of what a common goal and extreme determination can accomplish.

For information about the Wilson County 4-H clubs, contact the Wilson County Extension Office at 830- 393-7357 or wilson-tx@tamu.edu.
