Information and resources for the 4-H Healthy Lifestyles Invitational and Recipe Rally contest is now available online at: http://texas4-h.tamu.edu/projects/food-nutrition/. Both of these contests are invitational, but be sure to read through the information attached to get specific details.
Healthy Lifestyles Invitational: This contest is open to intermediates and seniors and is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, June 7th. The contest is structured similar to a Consumer Decision Making Contest, where youth individually judge classes that related to the healthy lifestyles topics listed in the contest packet (attached). Youth can register to participate as an individual or team. An online training about this invitational opportunity will be held on Tuesday, April 5th at 10:00 am via WebEx. During this training, an overview of the contest will be provided, and the online invitational opportunity – in which youth can go through a practice invitational contest - will be introduced as well.
Recipe Rally: Although invitational, the Recipe Rally does require some pre-qualification prior to Texas 4-H Roundup. This is an opportunity for intermediates and seniors to work individually or in pairs to submit a video of them demonstration the preparation of a recipe. All recipes should tie to the theme, “Picnic Perfect.” Among the entries submitted, four finalists will be selected to be a part of the cooking demonstrations that will take place at Texas 4-H Roundup.
