Ring stewards for the State Dog Show
The State 4-H Dog Show depends on many volunteers to make the days run smoothly. Each county is required to provide designated ring stewards. Ring stewards need to be a responsible adult or youth leader (grade seven or older). See show premium list (provided by county program coordinator) for additional details. Sign up to volunteer on your member entry form or at this helper webpage. You will be contacted with the time you are scheduled to steward at the show.
Does your county have an outstanding youth and/or adult volunteer in the dog project? If so, nominate them for a youth leader or adult leader award to be presented at the state dog show. Submit the nomination forms below by Sept. 1, 2017 to the address on the form. For questions related to the State 4-H Dog Show, you should contact the volunteer coordinators, Jan Brule at firstname.lastname@example.org or Kelsey Aszmann at email@example.com.
