4-H Project Bowl practices starting in January

2016 Jr. Rabbit Bowl team

The second most attended 4-H event all year is the Project Bowl competition. Patterned after the golden-oldie television show "College Bowl", it challenges teams of 3-6 youth on their knowledge of 4-H project areas offered currently in Dakota County are: Dog, General Livestock, Horse, Poultry, Rabbit, and Wildlife.  If you are interested in starting a team we are looking for coaches and team members for: Dairy and Lama.

Team members practice set study materials to prepare for the Regional Project Bowl Competition, held at the Hastings High School on Saturday, March 10, followed by the state project bowl.  Each species has two divisions: Junior (grades 3 - 8) and Senior (grades 4 - 4-H graduation). Regional winners advance to the State Project Bowl and state winners in dairy, general livestock, horse, poultry and wildlife may go on to national contests.

Get your friends together, study hard, and ... most of all HAVE FUN during the project bowl season!
