Texas A&M AgriLife Extension invites all Orange County youth ages 8-18 enrolled in a public, private or homeschool to enter the annual Food & Craft Project Contest.

The contest will be in conjunction with the Orange County Livestock Show Oct. 7 and 8 at Tin Top 2 Arena in Orange.

Youth can enroll for the project of their choice online at Select the registration tab to the right and select the Craft & Food Project Contest.

You can enter as many items as you like at no cost to register.

Categories include Food, Industrial Arts, Family & Community Science, Art, Photography and Horticultural.

Projects must be brought to Tin Top 2 Arena between 4-6 p.m. Oct. 7.

Judging of projects takes place that evening and is announced at the beginning of the livestock auction, which starts at 7 p.m.

The grand champion winner in each age division has the opportunity to have their project auction.

All reserve grand champions are placed in a silent auction. You will have the choice to auction or not.

“This opportunity allows us to show the talents of our youth,” organizers said.
