So What Exactly is County Events?
County Events is an annual chance for 4-H members to show off their knowledge, skills, and talents in a 4-H project area through multiple competitions. You can share knowledge in a public speech or illustrated talk; teach a skill in a demonstration; show off a talent in share-the-fun; or create something to share through photography, graphic design, chef-in-training, or fashion revue. These competitions are for youth of all ages and a fun way to share what you know!
This year’s County Events will have 7 competitions – 4 which will be performed live on 3/29 and 3 which will be due prior to 3/29. Be sure to check the deadlines for each competition you plan to participate in.
