How about a three-day all expense paid trip to Port Fourchon to fish and crab as well as learn about the wetlands, the shrimp industry and the Louisiana Offshore Oil Port.

Keaton Northington, a member of the Family Home Educators 4-H Club, has been named a state winner in the Jr. Wildlife Records Contest and will get to go to the Fourchon in August to do all of these things.

Northington submitted his 4-H wildlife related records to win the trip along with 11 other 4-H members from across the state.

Northington submitted his Wildlife, Forestry, Environment, Shooting Sports and 4-H President's records to win the trip. He has also been named an Outstanding Club Member in St. Charles Parish.

This past year he was a State Blue Ribbon winner in the Sixth Grade Achievement Records Contest.
