Much like the hit television show Shark Tank, Floyd County 4-H’ers participated in the State Food Product Development Contest this past weekend. This contest is a partnership between the University of Georgia Food Science Department and Georgia 4-H. Participants were challenged to develop a food product and complete both a written and verbal proposal. The Floyd County Team developed a product called Clover Cups. The Floyd County 4-H Team was awarded second place in state. Team Members Veeka Malanchuk, Karmen Holbert, Natalie Daniel and Mason Daniel are pictured with Dr. Mohan from UGA Food Science Department.
