FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Hundreds of 4-Hers from across Arkansas spent two days competing in
dozens of categories including agribusiness public speaking, photography, performing arts and
forestry at the 2012 State 4-H O-Rama held on the campus of the University of Arkansas.

Contestants came from 45 of the state’s 75 counties: Ashley, Baxter, Bradley, Benton, Boone,
Calhoun, Clark, Clay, Columbia, Conway, Craighead, Crawford, Crittenden, Cross, Dallas,
Faulkner, Franklin, Garland, Grant, Greene, Hot Spring, Howard, Independence, Johnson,
Lawrence, Madison, Montgomery, Nevada, Perry, Phillips, Pike, Polk, Pope, Pulaski, Randolph,
Saline, Sebastian, Sevier, Sharp, Stone, Union, Van Buren, Washington, White and Yell.

In addition to the competitions, there were winners of a social media competition, with prizes
donated by the Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas. The Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas are a
new sponsor for 4-H, donating $25,000 for the O-Rama Banquet of Excellence.

As part of the 4-H O-Rama social media initiative, Lauren I. of Howard Co., won a 32-inch
HDTV for sharing her favorite 4-H memory or story on the 4-H Facebook page,

Sayer S. from Benton Co. won an iPad2 as part of Tweet-O-Rama, one of three social media
contests for 4-Hers that was kicked off during state O-Rama. Anna H. of Benton County, Austin
K. of Johnson County, and Sabrina R. of Howard County each won an iPod Shuffle during the
Tweet-O-Rama contest.

“I have to congratulate all the 4-H members, volunteers and others who helped make the 2012
O-Rama one of the biggest and best events we have ever had,” said Anne Sortor, who heads
up the 4-H program in Arkansas.

“We also want to thank the Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas, Arkansas Farm Bureau and Farm
Credit, whose support makes O-Rama a rewarding experience for everyone involved,” she said.
“We are so grateful to the programs that understand our mission and do so much to help us
help our young people.”

O-Rama was held July 25-26.
