The annual 4-H Farm Credit Showmanship Circuit, sponsored by Carolina Farm Credit and Cape Fear Farm Credit, provides youth ages 5 to 19 an opportunity to compete against other youth from across the region. This year, due to COVID-19, our circuit went virtual with participating youth from the following counties: Randolph, Guilford, Stanly, Montgomery, Cumberland, Richmond, Lee, Chatham, Union, Anson, Moore, Rockingham, Person, Cabarrus, Franklin, Hoke, and Robeson Counties. Points are accumulated at each show, and placings are determined by total points received.

The Showmanship classes are designed to gauge the 4-H’er’s knowledge and skill with the animal. By participating in the 4-H Farm Credit Showmanship Circuit, youth learn leadership skills, record-keeping, communication, and responsibility, while increasing their self-esteem.

In this year’s circuit, Franklin County had two 4-H’ers participate, including one Cloverbud (youth ages 5-7). The Cloverbud division is a non-competitive division with the sole purpose of allowing the youngest 4-H’er’s to gain beneficial experience.

4-H’er’s received awards on October 29, 2020, at the virtual 4-H Farm Credit Showmanship Circuit Awards Banquet.

Congratulations to these showmen for a job well done.
