4-H Science of Agriculture

4-H Science of Agriculture

As we enter fall we also begin the journey into a new 4-H programming year.  I wanted to share with you an opportunity for Minnesota 4-H youth who are in 6th grade and above.  The Minnesota 4-H Science of Agriculture Challenge is entering its fourth year and registration for teams who wish to participate is now open and will close on November 15, 2017.

The 4-H Science of Agriculture Challenge event asks youth to explore and develop science-based solutions to agricultural problems they have identified in their communities. 4-H’ers will work on teams of 3-4 youth, in 6th grade and above. Participants will attend a statewide event to present their 4-H Science of Agriculture projects, which will be evaluated and judged. The top three teams will be awarded scholarships that range from $1,000 to $500 per team member. Youth will also have a chance to connect with representatives from the University and the agribusiness community, who are eager to meet the next generation of leaders in agriculture and STEM.

To learn more about this opportunity please visit the Science of Agriculture Challenge webpage:

We are looking to establish a team in North St Louis County and are looking for both youth participants and adult advisors. If you are interested in being a part of this group please contact the office at 218-749-7120.
