Q In the United States general population, how many adults suffer from high blood pressure?


A. 1 in 2    B. 1 in 3    C. 1 in 5

This is the kind of question a team of five teens from Grant County faced during the state LifeSmarts competition held last week in Frankfort. The event, a game-show style competition, asks teens questions involving personal finance, consumer rights, health and safety, technology and the environment.

This was the first year Grant County had a team. The teens, all members of 4-H, placed in the top nine teams in the state, finishing fourth overall. In a double elimination. They narrowly missed earning a trip to Miami to compete in the national competition.

The team is coached by Donna McClanahan of Williamstown.  For more information about LifeSmarts call Joyce Doyle at 859-824-3355.
