2018 Southwest Animal Science Challenge
Saturday, Feb. 17
Wabasso Public School

Livestock and horse enthusiasts, mark your calendar!  The seventh annual Southwest Animal Science Challenge is a day-long 4-H event held at the Wabasso Public School. The day consists of project bowl competition, hands-on skill-a-thon stations, and project workshops led by industry-leading professionals. The day is open to participants of all ages, with two project bowl divisions: junior (grades 3-8) and senior (grades 9+).

The "round robin" project bowl portion will provide a great practice contest for teams to prepare for the regional competitions in March. Skill-a-thon stations will be designed to cover general knowledge of livestock and horse. Workshops will be presented on current “hot topics” in the horse and livestock industry, and will cover an array of topics for you to choose from.  The event is open to all Minnesota 4-H Project Bowl teams of three to six 4-H members, as well as individuals wishing to attend for just the skill-a-thon stations and workshops.  Additional cross-county project bowl teams may be formed accordingly.

More information will be available from your county Extension Office in January. Please direct questions to Melissa Runck at mkrunck@umn.edu, 507-836-6927.
