Livestock shows and rodeos are the bread and butter of traditional Texas 4-H. It’s not hard to understand why.
Youth involved in livestock projects develop skills that benefit them in school, at home, and on the job, becoming more dependable, confident, and qualified individuals. Backing this positive youth development is the fact that Texas is the number one state in total livestock shows, major livestock shows, prize money rewarded to youth, premium auction sales, youth participation, volunteer support, and scholarships provided.
Take a look at the 4-H member categories to ensure your child is eligible to enter animal project contests. Also, don’t forget that original youth exhibitor and parent signatures are required on all original paperwork.
