In case you are wondering, the Leaders 4 Life Contest is still a relatively new contest in the Texas 4-H program. Here are few details:
The Leaders 4 Life Skill-A-Thon is a competitive event designed to challenge county 4-H council teams in their leadership skills, parliamentary procedure, and service learning.
Overview of the Leaders 4 Life Skill-A-Thon Components
- Parliamentary Procedure Demonstration – Teams will have 20 minutes to present a mock 4-H club meeting. Each team will be given a meeting agenda and three problems to incorporate into their presentation. Maximum score is 100 points.
