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.
