4-H Project Bowl teams compete at state level
Four teams from Douglas County participated in the Minnesota 4-H State Project Bowl event held in Foley on April 20. There were five Regional Bowls, followed by the State Bowl.
For each bowl there are two divisions, junior and senior. Junior teams are composed of 4-H'ers in grades 3-8. Senior teams are composed of members in grades 4 through one year post high school.
State winners in dairy, general livestock, horse and poultry advance to national contests held throughout the U.S.
By participating in project bowl experiences, youth recognize what they know or do not know, verbalize answers in a competitive situation, participate as part of a team and have incentive to learn as much as they can about a given subject.
