What's That Yam Thing? Contest
A festival favorite for years, the What's That Yam Thing? contest brings out the creative side, as children transform sweet potatoes into people, animals, and things for a chance to win a ribbon and prize money!
The 2022 Johnston County Ham & Yam Festival “What’s That Yam Thing?” contest was hosted by the Johnston County 4-H! Youth aged 5-18 entered their creations into one of three categories: Animal, Person, or Thing. Pictures are of some of this years winners!
