Do you have a child in 4-H? Does your child have a project are that he/she has learned about during the 4-H year? If so, come join in on the fun and showcase their project area and talents during 4-H County Events. Deadline to register for County Events is Friday, March 9th.
What is County Events?
County Events are designed for 4-Hers across the Nation to provide a platform where youth can demonstrate their talents, prepare a demonstration or illustrated talk, and present it to a panel of judges. The judges score the demonstration, speech or talent and provide the 4-Hers with the score of their presentation. Winners from County Events then go on to compete in District Events. Winners from District Events get to compete at the State level.
