There will also be educational activities for 4-Hers of all ages.


It will be the participant’s responsibility to make sure they have access to reliable internet to fully participate in each contest. We encourage agents to work with interested youth to make sure they have an adequate internet connection before the contest begins.

With the online format, we want to remind participants that an important aspect of youth development is practicing integrity and character development. While we have included securities for each event, youth need to practice the fairness pillar and adhere to the honor system.
