Substitutions (Page 3)
- Only the number of 4-H members who qualify at district will qualify for state.
- Substitutions are allowed in the event of an emergency or unexpected circumstance and a team member can no longer compete at state.
- The purpose of making a substitution is to keep the original number of team members that competed at District eligible to compete at State.
- Substitutes must be 4-H members from the same county and certified as having competed at the district level in another 4-H contest.
- *NEW* The deadline for requesting any substitutions, except for an emergency, is the close of the regular Roundup Registration deadline. If substitutions occur during the late fee period, additional fees may be accessed.
MAXIMUM SUBSTITUTIONS ALLOWED BASED ON TEAM SIZE
1 member No Substitutions Allowed
2 or 3 1 member
4 or 5 2 members

Substitutions of team members may involve a monetary fee depending on the time of substitution.
Intermediates participating as seniors in Invitationals (page 6)
Intermediate Age youth can compete as a Senior to complete a team for SOME Invitational Contests. Those choosing to do so, will be eligible for awards in that level only. Intermediates moving up would be considered as Seniors for ranking. This will NOT be allowed for the following contests: Hippology, Healthy Lifestyles, Livestock Skill-A-Thon, Poultry Judging, and Soil Judging as these contests allow for national competition open to Seniors aged youth only.
