The Little International is a showmanship contest sponsored by Wilmington College Collegiate 4-H to help participants improve their showmanship skills. There will be four age divisions: Beginner (ages 9-10 years old), Junior (ages 11-12 years old), Intermediate (ages 13-16 years old) and Senior (ages 17-21 years old). Up to four species can be chosen: Beef Cattle, Equine, Goats, and Sheep. Participants can choose to show all four species or pick only a specific species.  However, it is a great learning experience to show all four species. All animals and show equipment will be provided on the day of the show.

Please mail all pre-registration forms to Wilmington College no later than March 31, 2019. Registration the day of the show will begin at 7:00AM and close at 8:00AM. Show management reserves the right to close any class or species division due to excess enrollment at any time. A demonstration of each species will be from 8:00AM-9:00AM followed directly by the start of the show. The event will last the majority of the day, depending on the number of participants.

Ribbons will be awarded to the top three contestants in each species. Banners will be given to an overall and runner up contestants in each species.
