In 2021, we saw how resilient our stock show families are. We saw teamwork. We saw unity that was unique and incredible to support thousands of 4-H and FFA youth across the state during a pandemic. As we begin filling our livestock pens in preparation for the 2022 show season, we are excited to share that The Grandstand committee and eight volunteers from the past Hill Country District Junior Livestock Show have joined forces to create a new organization and show, the Hill District Grandstand Show. This organization has been formed to continue the tradition of supporting our 4-H and FFA youth in the Hill Country and surrounding areas. The Hill District Grandstand Show will be the only (?) District show moving forward. We hope you and your family will join us at the show to be held January 15-22, 2022!
As we are working on getting everything ready, we appreciate your patience as we continue to develop the rule book and entry platform. Attached you will find the rule book, and below is a link to our website with show information.
November 10th, we will have the online entry portal available for families. Families will be responsible for entering themselves, and AST and CEAs will be asked to approve their entries upon completion of their entries (detailed instructions to come).

Tractor Supply proudly began our partnership with 4-H in 2010 and we have since helped raise over $14 million through our Paper Clover fundraisers. The success of these campaigns has impacted over 69,000 students by providing them with hands-on learning experiences through projects in STEM, agriculture, healthy living, and civic engagement.
100% of funds raised through our two Paper Clover fundraisers directly benefit 4-H and the kids and teens they work with - 90% of donations directly support 4-H youth in the state it was raised, and the remaining 10% supports national 4-H programming.
