Texas 4-H Roundup is the pinnacle event for all of Texas 4-H, with more than 4,000 participants competing in approximately 50 diverse competitions throughout the week-long event. The majority of the events require each individual or team to qualify at the county and district level before progressing to State Roundup.
Seven Bosque youth brought home 3 awards from the 71st annual Texas 4-H Roundup held at Texas A&M University last week. Bosque County took 22 4-H members to State Roundup this year to compete in 8 events: Ag Product ID, Fashion Storyboard, Archery, Food Challenge, Entomology ID, Wool Judging, Share the Fun, Vet Science Skill-a-thon, and Livestock Judging.
The Savory Sisters – Emma Guillory, Mackenzie Errington, Lia Worley, Darcy Wyatt, and Emily Murphy, placed 2nd in the Food Challenge Competition and have the opportunity to compete in Nationals later this fall.
Maggie Chaffin placed 8th in individual Beef Judging.
Emma Guillory played guitar and sang “Blackbird” to place 2nd with her Share the Fun performance.
Leigh Ann Murphy, one of our adult 4-H volunteers, won the Salute to Excellence Award for her ongoing service as a volunteer in 4-H.
Mackenzie Errington and Lia Worley have proudly represented Bosque County and both were honored with scholarships during Roundup.
4-H is the nation’s largest youth development and empowerment organization, cultivating confident kids who tackle the issues that matter most in their communities right now. More than 65,000 Texas youth are enrolled members of 4-H community clubs in Texas. Another 850,000 Texas youth get involved in 4-H through special educational opportunities at school, in after school programs, or at neighborhood or youth centers. The youth who attend 4-H Roundup are able to display the leadership skills, citizenship development, team building and competition skills learned throughout the year.
Roundup is one of many 4-H activities that the Annual Lucky Clover Golf Tournament raises funds for. We are short on players this year and are reaching out for more participants to help support 4-H Youth. If you would like to play in the tournament please call today or sign up by clicking HERE
The tournament will be Saturday, June 17th at the Bosque Valley Golf Club with flights beginning at 8:00am and 2:00pm. For more information, please contact the Extension Office at 254-435-2331.
