The 2013 4-H Clothing Packet

The 2013 4-H Clothing Packet is now available at

The 2013 Clothing Packet includes the guidelines, rules and regulations for the Fashion Show and the Fashion Storyboard Contest at State Roundup.  The website also includes all contest documents in a fillable PDF format.  Please discard the 2012 Roundup materials as information in the guide has changed. 

Please review changes to the contest rules and paperwork.

  • The following design brief will serve as the direction for the 2013 Fashion Storyboard contest.

Be True to Who You Are

As Dr. Seuss says, “Why fit in when you were born to Standout!”  Who cares what anyone else thinks.   Go with your emotion.  Show your passion!  Show the you that is you in your original fashion.

  • Due to lack of participation the Fashion Show Stage Design contest has been discontinued.

  • The number of copies of Fashion Show paperwork required to be mailed in by May 8, 2013 is two.

  • Quilt Challenge is being revised.  The Challenge is moving back towards its roots as a statewide community service project.  The Quilt Challenge guideline will be available October 1, 2012. Quilts will not be displayed at 4-H Roundup in College Station.
