Information for Families

What is Showcase Showdown?

Showcase Showdown offers an opportunity for youth to explore various industries through contests and workshops. The event takes place at the University of Wyoming in Laramie, Wyoming. Youth can participate in contests, workshops, tours and activities over the course of three days. There are also two award ceremonies that recognize youth for their efforts.

Lodging

This year, we will have access to the University of Wyoming dorms. Youth and their chaperons will have the opportunity to truly experience the UW experience. Dorms are offered with double beds in each room. Each room is equipped with a sink, two beds, blankets, sheets, pillows, and wash clothes. Rooming assignments will be made through county offices.

Hotels are also available in Laramie. There are currently two room blocks reserved at the Holiday Inn (under Showcase Showdown) and at the Comfort in (under Wyoming 4-H).

Meals

All meals will be offered through the Washakie Dining Center on Campus. This cafeteria is located in close proximity to the dorms and contest locations. Meals will be available in various different packages on registration.
