Join Us for the 4-H Carnival
Purchase $1 tickets from 4-H members now to be entered in the drawing for cash prizes. Each ticket can also be redeemed for two booth tickets the day of the carnival.
Booth tickets will be sold the day of the carnival for 25¢ each.
The High Country Handiworkers will be hosting five booths including Toilet Paper Toss, Lollipop Pull, Lockbox, Iron Man Challenge, and Rubberband Guns. We will also be donating three baskets (Colorado Sports, Camping, Dog Care) for the live auction held at 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m.
All proceeds benefit 4-H programs in Larimer County.
4-H members are encouraged to enter the County Animal Record Book Contest to have their books evaluated. Champion and Reserve Champion awards will be given to the top Junior, Intermediate, and Senior books in each division. This contest is for members who want their Beef, Dairy Cattle, Dog, Cat, Goat, Horse, Alpaca/Llama, Poultry, Rabbit, Sheep, and Swine record books evaluated on the county level.
Each species will be judged separately. If you put all of your species in one e-fecord book, you must make a separate copy of your book for each contest you wish to enter; otherwise, the book will only be judged in one of the specie categories. For the purposes of using the Junior Livestock Sale price in your record book calculations, youth should use the price determined on the night of the sale and should not wait for the final amount included in the Junior Livestock Sale Committee letter (including add-ons and commission adjustments). This letter typically is not received until mid-September.
4-H club members do not have to compete in this contest to complete their 4-H year or project work, but must have their book(s) reviewed by their club or project leader for completion. To enter the contest, give your record books to your club leader by September 11.
Cindy will take the record books to Fort Collins, so please get them to her before September 11, or on September 11 at our club picnic. Our club expectation is for all in livestock participants to enter the contest. If you need help in any way, please ask.
The High Country Handiworkers 4-H club was chartered in 1980 and is located in Larimer County, Colorado.
