- Intermediate (grades 6, 7, 8)

Entries per county. A 4‐H member may enter only one storyboard. There are no limits to the number of Fashion Storyboards that a county may enter at the district contest. Participation in the Fashion Storyboard competition at Texas 4-H Roundup is for senior age division Texas 4-H members, who have placed 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in their district contest.
The following design brief serves as the direction for the 2019 Fashion Storyboards. 4-H members should create their Fashion Storyboard around their interpretation of the design brief.
“Once Upon a Storyboard” is the design brief for the 2019. Participants may also use “Once Upon A Time” as their design brief.
Once upon a time in Texas 4-H, members are challenged to develop a storyboard entry inspired from children’s literature. All genres of children literature may be explored! Whether it is a classic fairytale like “Beauty and the Beast”, a book of poems such as “Where the Sidewalk Ends” by Shel Silverstein, or a famous folklore like “Goldilocks and the Three Bears”, let the pictures on the pages, characters in the story, and words themselves encourage your imagination and creativity to foster an original design.
Awards. The top five placing contestants in each category/age division will be recognized.
