Regional & State Project Bowls

Our second most attended 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: Dairy, Dog, General Livestock, Horse, Lama, Poultry, Rabbit, Wildlife.

There are four Regional Project Bowls, followed by the State Project Bowl. Each 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 go on to national contests.

Get your friends together, recruit a coach, study hard, and ... most of all HAVE FUN during the Project Bowl season!

Bring some extra money ... you may want to buy a shirt!
