Southwest 4-H Animal Science Challenge

The 7th annual Southwest 4-H Animal Science Challenge is a day-long event, held at the Wabasso Public School. The day consists of a quiz bowl competition, a skill-a-thon contest and project workshops. The day is open to participants of all ages, with two divisions: junior (grades 3-8) and senior (grades 9+). Two separate competitions will focus on general livestock and horse. Please note that there will be no LQA&E certification this year.

The "round robin" quiz bowl portion will provide a great practice contest for teams to prepare for the regional competitions later in March.  Skill-a-thon stations will be designed to cover general knowledge of each specie area and the MN 4-H LQA&E curriculum.

The event is open to teams of 4-6 participants from across Minnesota. Individual registrations will also be accepted and additional multi-county teams may be formed accordingly.

More information is available in the attached flyer or from your county Extension Office.  To register go to  Please direct event related questions to Mike Compton at or Melissa Runck at, and registration related questions to Judy Christians at
