Texas 4-H Roundup Convention relocates to Lubbock

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

From Visit Lubbock: 

For the first time in 65 years, the annual Texas 4-H Roundup Convention has changed the event location from College Station to Lubbock.  To celebrate and welcome convention attendees, Visit Lubbock will kick-off the 2012 Texas 4-H Roundup at a ribbon cutting on Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. at United Spirit Arena.

At that time, Texas 4-H Roundup organizers will announce a record-breaking year in scholarship donations and a scholarship recipient will share how it will help him in pursuing his college degree. 

The Texas 4-H Roundup Convention is the pinnacle event for all of Texas 4-H.  Throughout the week, almost 4,000 attendees will take part in competitive events, skill-building activities, citizenship development and career building opportunities. In addition, the event will also award 243 scholarships equaling more than $2 million to 4-H members. 

The 4-H Roundup consists of approximately 50 individual competitive events, the majority of which require each individual or team to qualify at the county and district levels. However, the Texas 4-H Roundup will offer 13 invitational style contests and workshops, which allows intermediate and senior 4-H members to participate without prior qualification.

The convention will also feature the Third Annual 4-H Trade Show hosted by the Texas 4-H Friends and Alumni Association.  More than 75 vendors are expected to participate including colleges/universities, livestock associations, merchandise vendors, fundraising idea companies, award/trophy businesses, apparel companies and more.
