2020 National 4-H Livestock Judging, Skillathon and Quiz Bowl

Update: 9/9/2020

The Executive Committee of the National 4-H Livestock Contests Management Committee have been meeting regularly since April due to Covid-19 regarding the 2020 Contests for 4-H Livestock Judging, Skillathon and Quiz Bowl.  Many factors and guidelines must be met in order to hold the Contests each year, and even more so this year due to Covid-19.

The National 4-H Livestock Contests Committee prides itself conducting high quality, well run contests with a level playing field creating the best opportunity for 4-H’ers across the nation to excel.  The Committee believes that we will not be able conduct the Contests in a manner up to the standards needed, thus, the 2020 National 4-H Livestock Contests for Judging, Skillathon and Quiz Bowl have been cancelled.  We look forward to having the 2021 contests at the North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE) in Louisville, Kentucky.
