Ohio Youth Skillathons

To support the continued learning needs of youth livestock and companion animal exhibitors throughout Ohio, Ohio State University Extension and the Department of Animal Sciences are pleased to offer virtual Skillathons this year. Our 4-H Animal Sciences team will conduct online Ohio Youth Skillathons in 2020 with the chance to compete for the highest score.

These Skillathons will encompass the same educational materials, by species, that would typically be evaluated at the Ohio State Fair. Please save the date(s) for the species you would like to participate in.

Dates/times, rules, and registration for Ohio Youth Skillathons are now online at: https://ohio4h.org/animalsciences/ohio-youth-skillathons

Registration is due by JULY 15th, 2020.

  • Register by visiting: www.go.osu.edu/skillathonregistration
  • All exhibitors with need an email address specific to that exhibitor that can be used as your log-in credential (this is also where the first-time registration will be).

Project Judging Update

Please know that due to this information, final details and information about how Greene County will be handling judging and skillathons at the county level will be coming out any day.  Thank you all for your continued patience!

This just in from the Assistant Director, Kirk Bloir:

Due to COVID-19 and in alignment with the cancellation of the Ohio State Fair, there will be no 4-H state fair project judging this year. However, we know how important it is to recognize 4-H members for the time and effort in completing their projects. While we are still working on the details, we are excited to announce there will be an Ohio 4-H Project Showcase. All members will be invited to submit a photo of themselves with their 4-H project. These photos will be added to a gallery page on the state 4-H website and we’re working on plans to highlight members in additional ways. We’ll share the information about posting photos by June 15.

  • You don’t have to be an industry expert; answer keys will be provided.
  • We need help checking people in, grading, and reviewing books.
  • Do not sign up for a livestock species project in which your child is participating.

We need many volunteers to help make light work of this enormous task.  Please only select one area to volunteer.  If you are able to volunteer both days, we would prefer to have the same volunteer reviewing books for that species.
