Kentucky 4-H Livestock Quiz Bowl & Skillathon Contests

Kentucky 4-H Livestock Quiz Bowl & Skillathon Contests

Year: 2023
Project Leader: Zach Bartenslager
Department/Program: Kentucky 4-H Youth Livestock Programs
Funding: $1,000

Held annually in April, the Kentucky 4-H Livestock Quiz Bowl and Skillathon contest has continued to grow over the years. This year (2022) there was 40 contestants over 5 counties that participated in the first annual Livestock Quiz Bowl contest, while skillathon garnered 105 participants over 25 counties. Both of these events have 30 plus volunteers helping. Entry fees are required for the contests but do not cover the full scope of the contest expenses. Awards are given out to the top five teams in quiz bowl and four categories in skillathon (both team and individual awards). Both contests are a practical learning activity that helps students learn the basics of all aspects of the livestock industry.  Both contests' winning senior teams go on to the National Contest in the Fall.
