Things to Know Before You Go

 June 1, 2022

It’s time to Amplify your Impact!! We are excited to kickoff our 2022 Texas 4-H Roundup-LEAD Academy this year on Monday, June 6th with our LEAD Academy College and Career Fair at 2:30 pm. 

We are looking forward to a fun-filled week.

Information about Texas 4-H Roundup can be found at https://texas4-h.tamu.edu/events/roundup/ . Be sure and review the Texas 4-H Roundup-LEAD Registration packet for specific details about the event. 

The Blog will be updated on Friday, June 3 to reflect event specific details for the week.  http://texas4hroundup.blogspot.com/.

DAILY SCHEDULE:

Our daily event schedule has been created and shared as a Google Doc on our website. We also recommend you download the Texas 4-H App which provides the schedule detail as well as gives you the opportunity to star events you are specifically participating in next week. We encourage those wishing to have a paper copy of the schedule to print it on Sunday, June 5th. We hope to not have any changes, but with events such as these, things do get adjusted. We will do our best to communicate those changes as timely as possible, but we plan to have the schedule finalized to the best of our ability on Friday, June 3 with any final details about the week. Also as a reminder, our evening event on Tuesday and Wednesday are outdoors and subject to change should there be weather in the area next week. We are all hopefully for rain of course, therefore Reed Arena is the backup location for those two evenings.

LEAD Academy participation required pre-registration (watch for an email from Megan Logan with further details to come later this week). However, anyone is welcome to visit the Trade Show or 

Onsite Community Service activity on Wednesday and Thursday on the 2nd Floor of the Memorial Student Center (MSC). 

Audience is allowed and encouraged at our Educational Presentation, Public Speaking and Share the Fun contests. The 1st place Share the Fun acts or Public Speaking winner WILL NOT perform at the evening assemblies, therefore if you would like to watch them, please review the schedule and plan to attend the live performances/presentation. 

ADDITIONAL COMMUNITY SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES

The Tuesday LEAD Academy Community Service event required pre-registration however we have other opportunities during the week of Roundup for your to serve. 

  1. Robb School Memorial Fund -We will be collecting funds in support of the Robb School Memorial Fund. 100% of proceeds will go to support the families affected by the tragedy and will be donated directly to the First State Bank of Uvalde under Texas 4-H Program’s name
  2. Brazos Valley Food Bank – Even though you may not have signed up to help with the Tuesday Community Service event, you can still participate. We are wanting to collect some of their Most Needed Food Donation items and deliver them to the BVFB on Tuesday. The specific requested items are

This will be held in the Memorial Student Center (MSC) 2401.  Materials provided, just stop by and help make socks to be donated to local nursing homes in the Bryan - College Station  area.

PARKING PERMIT:

Everyone will need to purchase a parking permit for the week if you will be attending events on campus. Those who do not have a proper permit risk a parking ticket which can be up to $50. 

Here is the map to the parking. The lots in gold are designated parking areas for Roundup events. https://transport.tamu.edu/WebFS/Transport/Maps/Events/4hconfernce.pdf 

You will need your license plate information when you purchase your pass.  https://transport2.tamu.edu/account/conference/parkingpermits.aspx

REGISTRATION:

Headquarters this year will be at Reed Arena. We encourage our participants to park in the North Entrance parking lot of Reed Arena and enter the building at the sidewalk that will be lined with Texas 4-H Flags. 

**Contestants - This year you will need to pick up wrist bands at Reed Arena. They will not be handed out at the contest locations as they were last year. 

Registration packets will be picked up at Reed Arena during operation hours. Wristbands are required at the event to identify both adults and youth. This is for the safety and security of our event so we can identify those who are a part of Texas 4-H Roundup – LEAD Academy. The wristbands will also serve as your meal ticket for those participating in the LEAD Academy workshop series. 

Onsite Registration is also available for those that did not pre-register through 4HOnline. Onsite Registration is $15/day or $45/week. Cash and credit card payments only. No checks will be accepted.

**On Monday we will keep the Registration packet pick up are open until 7 pm for those needing to pick up before Tuesday’s contests.  However, you will only be able to purchase wristbands until 5pm that day. Tuesday and Wednesday it will close at 5 pm because we have our assembly events offsite and need to be out of Reed Arena by 5 pm those days so plan accordingly for the next day contests.

CONTEST EXPECTATIONS:

Contestants should receive direct emails from your contest superintendents regarding contest specifics. Please pay close attention to the details as many contests have staggering start times due to heats. The overall schedule that is posted may not include specific details related to start times for those contests.

 

Contestants will need to check-in and check-out at their contest. Each superintendent will handle this procedure a bit differently. At most, there will be a QR code that needs to be scanned when the contest is over. We know contestants are asked not to have their phones with them during a contest, therefore the adult volunteer picking them up can help with this sign out process. This helps us to keep track of the youth here are the event. 

Contest take place a various location around Bryan/College Station. Be sure to review information provided by the Contest Superintendent regarding the event location. We are also working on denoting location information on the Texas 4-H App and the Google Doc Schedule. Location information will be on the last page of the document later this week. 

 

THANK YOU NOTES

Many of our contest have sponsors that help offset the cost of awards, facility rental, and other expenses. Please review the 2022 Sponsor list on the Texas 4-H Roundup webpage and take the time to write thank you notes to sponsors of your specific contest. We will have a red can near the Registration area where you can drop off the Thank You notes when you pick up your packet. As noted, In lieu of THANK YOU notes to the Texas 4-H Youth Development Program, please take the time to THANK your Parents/Guardians, County Agents, Coaches and others that have helped to provide you with the development skills and knowledge to achieve this goal of competing at the state level!!!
