MERIDIAN —     The first place winners in the senior level of 4-H competition at this year’s 4-H Congress, state awareness team members and the state 4-H Council officers will be in Meridian July 17 as part of their state tour.

    They will stop for a 9 a.m. tour of East Mississippi Electric Power Association and a 10 a.m. tour of the Lauderdale County Farmers Supply before leaving for Jackson.

    In addition, they will be at Mississippi State University July 16 and 19. Other stops on their tour are Mayhew, Greenville, Greenwood, Scott, Jackson and Ridgeland.

Their bus tour will include an electric power association, a farmers’ supply, grain terminal and a cotton gin. The youth also will spend time visiting the Mississippi Capitol.
