4-H'ers test their knowledge
Nine teams from Douglas County 4-H participated in the 4-H Regional Project Bowl held in Foley on March 7.
Patterned after the golden-oldie TV show, "College Bowl," the project bowl challenges teams of three to six youth in their knowledge of certain 4-H project areas.
Currently there are seven different bowls - Dairy, Dog, General Livestock, Wildlife, Horse, Poultry and Rabbit.
There are 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 and senior teams are composed of members in grades 4 through 4-H graduation.
Regional winners advance to the State Bowl, and state winners in dairy, general livestock, horse and poultry go on to national competitions.
