By clicking this link you will find the guidelines for the 2013 Swine Skill-a-thon Guidelines. The attached document is meant to be a guide for CEA’s, Volunteer Leaders, and Youth interested in the Swine Skill-a-thon. Hopefully, this will ease some anxiety related to what the skills stations might consist of, and what the impromptu topics might be associated with the contest.
The guide indicates there will be four skills stations in the contest, and gives eight possible topics that they could be related to. The guide also limits the possible speech topics to three. Youth will have 15 minutest to prepare and 5 minutes to give their speech. A rubric for the speech is also attached. This document will also be posted on the State 4-H Roundup website.
This contest at Texas 4-H Roundup is open to youth who who are 11 years of age to 18 years of age as of August 31, 2012. Texas 4-H Roundup takes place in June on the Texas A&M University Campus.
If junior level members are interested in a possible county contest, please contact Cory. This would allow for any junior members to get a head start for the upcoming years to know and understand this contest.
