4-H in the West Central Region
Regional Public Speaking
The top two Intermediate and Senior speakers from each of the districts in the region compete in the Regional Competition. A separate competition is held for Intermediates and Seniors. Dates are set annually by Regional Council. Each year a different district hosts the competition.
Each year District councils are asked to submit the number of presentations that have been done in their district. Once those numbers have been received in the Regional 4H Office, a quota for participants at the Regional event is set. There are a maximum of 18 presentations at the regional event and some preference is given to seniors.
Regional Junior Winter Camp
Held in late February, or early March, (the second weekend after Family Day), this is a weekend winter camp for 4H members 10-12 years old. The camp is held at the Alberta 4H Centre, Battle Lake and is planned and staffed by members of the West Central 4H Alumni. Senior members who are interested in counseling at camps may apply to be counselors at this program, and to assist with planning.
Regional Horse Show
This annual event gives members in horse clubs an opportunity to compete against horse club members from other areas in a wide variety of classes. The Horse Show is held the weekend before the first Monday in June at the Red Deer Westerner grounds. The event is planned by the West Central Light Horse Committee. This committee meets throughout the year to plan the show. If you are interested in being on the committee, please contact the 4H office in Stettler.
Regional Record Book Competition
4H members keep record books to allow them to keep track of how much it costs to complete their project. There is a regional competition to pick the top record books in each of the projects. The deadline for submission of books to the competition is November 1st of each year. Contact your District Key Leader for more information.
Multi Species Judging
A multi species judging competition is held each year and it is hosted by a different district each year. The date and location of the event are decided by the hosting district.
Each year a different district hosts a fun day for 4H members. The date and activities are up to the local planning committee.
