There will not be any distinction between 4-H juniors and intermediates in competition or awards.

Entries per county. Counties can enter only one junior and one senior team per club, for as many clubs as you have in the county. When registering with the stock show, use a unique 4-H club name for each team.

Members per team. Teams consist of up to 4 members of the same age division. Members that are 13 or younger are not allowed to move up to the senior age division.

Awards. 1st through 5th place individual and team awards in each category will be presented. The top 3 placed senior teams and/or individuals will advance to state.

Depending on Covid-19 restrictions, we may not be able to have a formal awards assembly. The winners will be announced via Facebook Live and posted on the District IV 4-H Facebook Page later that day/evening in the event we cannot hold them in person.
