Showmanship? What's Showmanship?

At the show the judge come up to every student and basically as "Tell me a little about your project"


Information you could tell him about

-Type of materials

-What different machines you had to use

-What were the steps to building your projects

-General dimensions of your project and specific cuts you made


Your student will have a book at the show that has all of this information in it that the judge may review. To get familiar with the information I have attached a link below.

-Shirt: Collared shirt. Tucked into your jeans.

-Belt: Plain leather or covered in bling, whatever fits your personality.

-Jeans: No holes. No skinny jeans.

Collin County Ribbon Auction

Grand and Reserve Grand Champions, Class winner (4 entries in class) are eligible for the Collin County Livestock Ribbon Auction. During this auction bidders may "purchase" your students project. (The buyers are not actually buying the project.) This money is scholarship money and will be paid in cash.To be eligible for the money the student MUST be present.



The auction will be held Saturday January 12th, 2018 and begins at 10:30am.


Student arrival time will be based on when your students project is up for auction

If you student qualifies for the auction the only way to guarantee your student's item is purchased is for you to supply a "buyer". What has happened in the past is a business in Collin County has "bought" the project. THIS IS NOT GUARANTEED BUT IS POSSIBLE.
