Bridget Murphy (Heatherton) and Zachary Kelly (St. Josephs) are the 2018 4-H Miss and Master for Antigonish County.
The 11-year-olds received the honour, Aug. 29, during 4-H Day at the Eastern Nova Scotia Exhibition.
“Handing out prizes,” Bridget said, when asked about the things she is looking forward to with her new role.
Zachary described receiving the honour as “pretty cool.”
As for their favourite aspects of 4-H, both youngsters talked about having the opportunity to participate in a living history event at Sherbrooke Village.
“It was awesome,” Bridget said.
Zachary nodded in agreement, noting he loved staying overnight, dressing in period costume and the food.
“It was a lot of fun,” he said.
Moving forward, Zachary wants to explore welding as part of his 4-H pursuits, while Bridget has her heart set on working with a dairy calf.
Each club nominates one candidate for the Miss and Master roles, between the ages of nine to 12. During interviews, they are asked about their 4-H knowledge and experiences.
The youngsters took over from Maddison Bezaire (West River) and Alex MacNeil (St. Joseph’s), the 2017 4-H Miss and Master.
