ANNOUNCEMENTS

Registration Drawing Near for State 4-H Roundup: Roundup registration information and forms have been posted to the 4-H Website at http://oklahoma4h.okstate.edu/events/roundup.htm. The deadline for registration is 5:00 p.m. June 22 to Ag Conferences, 430 Student Union. Because of delayed campus mail delivery, registration that is mailed must be postmarked by June 17. Counties whose registration fails to meet this deadline may not be accepted. If late registration is accepted, it will be assessed an additional $10 fee per delegate.  This is a VERY FIRM deadline!  Roundup registration forms are worked in the order they are received! To make sure your delegates get the workshops they want, please send early! If you have questions about Roundup, please contact Tracy Beck at 405-744-8891.
