A Texas 4-H Wildlife Habitat Education Project (WHEP) Practice Contest will be held March 19th in Gainesville (Cooke County), 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Registration is currently open on 4-H Connect and will close March 4th.
This practice contest is open to any current 4-H member or volunteer who is interested in a wildlife project or specifically WHEP. The practice contest is designed to train youth and adults in how to prepare for and participate in a 4-H WHEP Contest. All participants will be taken through a WHEP contest modified to fit the time frame. Each activity will be covered to give participants details about the activities and experience in each. All official answers will be provided following each activity as well as a question/answer time. This format is the only and best ‘training’ provided for youth and adults interested in learning more about 4-H WHEP. It is also a great way to add to an existing team’s training.
All participants should spend time prior to the Practice Contest reviewing the 2015 4-H WHEP Manual which is found on the 4-H Wildlife & Fisheries webpage (http://texas4-h.tamu.edu/projects/wildlife-fisheries/). The rules within the Manual are specifically for the National WHEP Contest held for Senior 4-H members only. A complete list of rules and procedures specific to this Practice Contest are in the WHEP Practice Contest Rules and Procedures - Cooke County document attached to this email.
