2022 SMITHVILLE LIVESTOCK SHOW DATES & EXPENSE REPORT REMINDERS
We wanted to share a couple of reminders for our Smithville Show Exhibitors, since we are about 3.5 weeks away from the show! There are a few dates and a couple of tasks that will need to be completed.
As a reminder, the rulebook is available for download HERE. Exhibitors and family members are responsible for knowing the rules that apply to their projects. Remember that 4-H members are representing our program at all times while at the show and should be following the Texas 4-H Code of Conduct while present at shows.
Please also note that the rulebook outlines a fine of $100 per violation for not participating in the setup and cleanup events. If you have a conflict, please get with your species superintendent(s) and your Ag Teacher(s)/County Agent ahead of time to discuss everything.
Please see the rest of the information below and let us know if you have any questions!
