**National 4-H Council announced CJ Harris of Covington, Georgia, is a runner-up for the 2022 4-H Youth in Action Award for STEM.

UGA College of Agriculture says Harris is recognized nationally for his work using 3D printing to effectively produce prosthetic limbs for children.

Harris taught classes on 3D printing and the intricacies of the human hand, and helped his 4-H club purchase a 3D printer.

Now a Georgia State freshman, Harris hopes to become a mechanical engineer.

**Christmas tree growers expect to overcome the challenges of COVID-19 and a Pacific Northwest heatwave to provide enough trees for 2021 demand.

After a tree-by-tree evaluation, growers expect to supply the same overall number of real Christmas trees to the marketplace this season as they’d planned before the crises hit.

With about eight weeks until Christmas tree shopping season, experts are confident there will be a real Christmas tree for everyone who wants one this year.

**U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai met virtually last week with U.K. Secretary of State for International Trade Anne-Marie Trevelyan, emphasizing her commitment to deepening bilateral trade and investment ties between the U.S. and the United Kingdom.

The USTR office says Tai discussed USTR’s ongoing review of the U.S. – U.K. free trade agreement negotiations to evaluate how a potential agreement could support the President’s broader Build Back Better agenda.
