District Roundup Information
Information is being updated weekly for the upcoming District 4-H Roundup that will be held in TAMU Commerce on May 3-4, 2019. For detailed information about the contest offered for the District Roundup go to the District Events Page https://d44-h.tamu.edu/event-page-links/ .
A document showing the date, time, and room to report to for each contest will be sent to all contestants and families when all entries have been approved.
For those entered in two contests that occur at about the same time, please use the following guide:
- Food Show and Educational Presentations/Public Speaking – compete at Food Show first, then immediately after you have been judged, report to your Educational Presentation room. We have scheduled your Ed. Pres. for later in the order, plus it starts 1-hour later than Food Show.
- Share the Fun – Group 2 (Saturday) and Consumer Decision Making – compete in Share the Fun first. Immediately after your performance, report to CDM. We have scheduled your STF performance early in the order.

CONTEST SPECIFIC INFORMATION
For details specific to your contest, please refer to the district website and click on your contest. https://d44-h.tamu.edu/ If you have questions that are not answered there, please visit with your County Extension Agent(s). They, in turn, can answer your questions or direct them to me. Last year we had over 280 contestants registered, this is the best method for getting your questions answered. New details for certain contests are outlined below:
|No computer aided/projected presentation equipment allowed. Posters and an easel is a suitable and recommended alternative. Props and other visual aids are allowed.
||Computer aided presentation equipment is allowed, but posters are highly recommended and encouraged. Props and other visual aids are allowed.
||Any type of presentation equipment, props, and visual aids are allowed (if also allowed by state rules).
- Intermediate and Senior Educational Presentations – A screen will be in each room. No computers or other projectors will be provided by contest officials. You must be familiar with the technology you plan to use. It is recommended to have your computer booted up and ready to go BEFORE your time to compete in order to prevent possible setup time penalties.
- Fashion Show – there are no designated “changing rooms”; however there are two sets of restrooms on the 2nd floor contestants may use to change outfits.
- Share the Fun – for those who need music, please bring your own playback devices. You will have the capability of connecting to their sound system via a line in jack (same size as on most cell phones). For those needing a piano in the music category, an electric piano will be available. Microphones will be available as well.
Adults, if you would like to help with a specific contest (as a judge, timekeeper, monitor, or the like), please let one of your agents know. He/she can submit your name, and we can plug you in to that contest.
