The District 8 4-H Holiday Classic is annual educational event hosted by County Extension Agents in District 8.  Families bring their cattle, lambs, swine, and goats to learn more about the responsibilities that are attributed to exhibiting livestock. During the two day program, experts in livestock and youth development provide educational, hands-on training for these families in both group and individual settings.  After the group and one-on-one trainings, the youth have the opportunity to exhibit their projects for practice and receive advice on how to care for their projects.  The Holiday Classic is unique because it is completely free to the families with all expenses being paid through local sponsorships.  The Holiday Classic is open to all youth and specifically marketed to the 21 counties in District 8:  Bell, Bosque, Comanche, Coryell, Eastland, Ellis, Erath, Falls, Freestone, Hamilton, Hill, Hood, Johnson, Leon, Limestone, McLennan, Milam, Navarro, Robertson, Somervell and Williamson.
