Wood County Roundup
County Roundup is just around the corner! What is County Roundup? Roundup is a public speaking/visual presentation competition for 4-H members at the county level. You can demonstrate how to do something, give a speech, or do a PowerPoint presentation about your 4-H project area or a topic of interest to you! Blue ribbon winners have the opportunity to record their visual presentation to be sent to Morgantown for State Competition and a chance to bring home the GOLD!
First-year 4-H members and Cloverbuds may sign up to recite the pledge or creed to gain public speaking experience. There will also be a Cookie Bakeoff at the April 2 Roundup.
