August 6 Family Update

Virtual 4-H Still Project Judging and Junior Fair Livestock Skillathon 

If you haven’t uploaded your Flipgrid video(s) yet, please read this note about submissions!

Flipgrid made some changes to their website and app this week, just in time to cause confusion in uploading judging videos!

I’ve updated the Flipgrid Submission Instructions to reflect these changes and some other things we’ve discovered along the way – including possible solutions to the most frequent issues in uploading videos.
