Attention members taking a rabbit project – would you like to test your skill at answering questions from the rabbit resource, ARBA Standards of Perfection and the ARBA Official Guide Book: Raising Better Rabbits & Cavies? Well then, the Ohio State Fair 4-H Rabbit Quiz Bowl Contest may just be the contest for you.
This is a new contest this year, with the primary purpose to provide and opportunity for 4-H members to demonstrate their knowledge of rabbit-related subject matter in a competitive setting where attitudes of friendliness and fairness prevail. The Rabbit Quiz Bowl Contest is designed to provide an educational experience for both participants and spectators.
Advisor Cindy Swinehart is willing to help get teams ready for the contest, which will be Saturday July 7th at the Nationwide & Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center. Cindy may be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone at 740-654-6827
There are opportunities for both Junior (ages 8-13 as of January 1) and Senior (ages 14-18 as of January 1) teams to complete. Teams will be at least 4 members, with a 5th member as an alternate. The team members must be 4-H members, but are not required to enroll in a 4-H rabbit project. You read that right – they don’t have to be taking a rabbit project! Each county may send 2 Junior and 2 Senior teams to this contest. We would love for Fairfield County to be well represented!
The deadline to enter is fast approaching – June 7th. If you would like more information about the contest, please visit the state website https://ohio4h.org/events/ohio-state-fair-4-h-rabbit-quiz-bowl-contest for details and more information.
