Girl Scouts Troop 30123 attended the 27th Annual Mississippi State Youth Conference May 31 - June 2 on the campus of the Mississippi University for Women.
The Mississippi State Youth Conference is an outreach of the Churches of Christ in Mississippi designed to equip youth to live a life that is pleasing to God. This is Troop 30123’s third year attending but this year was special due to their sister competing.
The Mississippi State Youth Conference aims to stimulate and promote the inner Christian ability in every youth to a higher ground. Through Christian competitions, each child should recognize the talent God has given them for the strengthening of the Body of Christ and for His honor and glory.
Makhi Fields and Jameshia Attaway, both of Delmar Church of Christ and from Sunflower County, competed for the title of Mr. and Miss Congeniality. They were judged on speech, content, delivery, originality, and spiritual message. Both Fields and Attaway came in first place, leaving as the 2019 Mr. and Miss Congeniality.
Makhi Fields and Jameshia Attaway advanced to the National Conference and will compete with youth across the United States for the National title of Mr. and Miss Congeniality on the campus of Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas in July. It was a pleasure to have so many youth together in one place for such a wonderful occasion.
