It's contest time!

Calling all 4-Hers!

It's time to prepare for our annual 4-H contests!  These contests are open to 4-H members of all ages and all project areas; this contest is a qualifier event for high school youth to participate at the State level. Here's the scoop:

Wednesday, June 29th: From 9-3 at the Richfield LDS Youth Center (91 S 200 W, Richfield) we'll have Demonstrations, Speaking (Impromptu, Public Speaking), Talent, Prepared Video Production, Consumer Bowl, and Cooking contests.

Not sure what to do? A demonstration is a great place to start! In a Demonstration you pick a subject you know how to do (build a rope halter, tie your shoes, make a PB&J sandwich - the options are endless!) and show the judges how to do it! Easy pea-sy!

Why do contests?  This year each participant will be eligible for
PRIZES and the top participants will earn a spot to participate in a showcase at the 2016 Sevier County Fair!
