State Roundup to hold ‘4-H has talent’

Do you have what it takes to be a star? Have you always pictured yourself performing on the big stage? If so, the 2010 Texas 4-H Roundup “4-H Has Talent Competition” is for you. Get the chance to show your skills on stage in front of nearly 3,000 fellow 4- Hers, parents/volunteers and 4-H faculty. So sing a song, do a dance, tell a joke or just do something unusual.

To get involved, submit a video file no longer than five minutes in length of your best talent. Submissions must be appropriate for 4-H youth.

A 4-H member may only participate on one team/entry and only intermediate and senior aged 4-H members are allowed to participate in this activity. Teams may be one age category or a combination of both intermediates and seniors. An individual and/or team (maximum four members) may only submit one video.

Ten finalists will be selected from their peers using an online voting system as well as an expert panel of judges. Those 10 finalists will then have the opportunity to perform on June 9 at the 4-H Roundup’s night assembly in Rudder Theater at Texas A&M University. After all finalists are finished performing, the audience will have the opportunity to vote via text messaging to select their winner.

All entries must be received in the State 4-H office by Friday, March 19. For more information check out http://texas4-h.tamu. edu/library/files/4-HHasTalent. pdf.
