2022 Texas 4-H Roundup Event Reminders
We wanted to send a couple of reminders to everyone following up on the Texas 4-H Roundup emails sent through the 4HOnline broadcast email system.
Check out the following information and links and let us know if you have any questions! We will be emailing those who qualified for contests this week to make sure they get registered; however, anyone can attend invitational contests!! This is a great opportunity to see if you like that contest, see the Texas A&M Campus, and check out some of the statewide things that happen in 4-H!!
Texas 4-H Roundup is a qualifying and invitational event for Senior 4-H youth (9th-12th) who placed in a district level roundup or signed up to compete in one of the invitational events. The Texas 4-H Roundup has around 50 diverse competitions that tie in with the many projects that 4-H has to offer.
LEAD Academy is designed to engage youth in hands-on educational activities in which they explore, practice, and master existing and newly developed skills and knowledge in civic engagement, civic education, and personal development. It is an opportunity for volunteers to sharpen their skills to help them while working with the 4-H members in their clubs and projects. Volunteers can connect and network with other volunteers and parents.

PREVIOUS BROADCAST EMAIL:
The following email has been sent to all 9th – 12th graders through 4HOnline broadcast email. Hopefully this email helps everyone find the event they are looking for. You can register for Contest, LEAD Academy, or both through the one event! Workshop information is posted to the LEAD Academy website now. Also at the bottom of this email you will find parking information which was not available when I sent the county agent email out earlier this week.
You will receive another email tomorrow morning to sign up for the HELP NEEDS for the contest that week. We are finalizing some judges/moderators/etc that have been already confirmed by our Superintendents before we release to what needs we still have for the week.
