4-H Creed Competition
Stanislaus County 4-H is holding the Creed Competition on January 20, 2018 at the County Ag Center. Registration begins at 8:30 am, competition starts at 9 am. Entry forms are due January 10, 2018. All Clubs are invited to participate and/or come to watch.
There are three Categories with age divisions in the competition. Again this year is a non-competitive category for Primary members to participate in at the event. (No awards other than participation acknowledgment is given to Primary members.)
Division One = Junior: 9 to 10 years old on December 31st
Division Two = Intermediate: 11 to 13 years old on December 31st
Division Three = Senior: 14 to 19 years old on December 31st (memory only)
Category One will be for members reading from a written version of the Creed. Not open to Seniors
Category Two will be for members reciting the creed from memory.
Category Three will be for Primary members (reading or memorized)
The Danish system of judging is used. There will be County Winner (Medalist) potentially awarded in each Category and Division. To receive the medal, the presentation must warrant county winner status. If you were a County Winner (Medalist) last year, you must move up to a higher division.
To Participate: Each member will recite the 4-H Creed and be asked a series of questions from the judges. A list of questions that could be asked is at the link above. Written answers cannot be used during the competition.
Do you know the 4-H Creed? It really is something all of our members should know.
