Roundup presentations are short talks about something you learned in a 4-H project. You can have poster, powerpoints and other props to teach the information.

Share-the-Fun contests offer a variety of ways to show off your talents. You can sing, dance, cheer, read poetry and much more.

Fashion Show participants can buy or construct a garment and model it for the judges. You will be asked questions about why you purchased the outfit along with care and quality questions.
