Congratulations to Currituck County 4-H’er Evan Bedsole, for his Gold Medal win at the 2021 NC 4-H Outcooking Cooking Competition. Evan competed in the 11-13 year old Chicken Grilling category with his “Honey Sriracha Chicken'' recipe and this first place win is a reflection of the time and dedication he committed to his project. Evan earned the opportunity to compete at the State competition by winning first place at the Northeast District Outdoor Cooking (Chicken) held this summer.
