Kansas 4-H Livestock Sweepstakes Information

Submitted by Lexie Hayes

2020 Livestock Sweepstakes

Due to COVID-19 concerns, the 2020 Kansas 4-H Livestock Sweepstakes (consisting of the State Livestock Judging, Skillathon, Quiz Bowl and Meats Contest) will not be hosted in-person on the campus of Kansas State University as previously scheduled for August 22-23. Instead, Kansas 4-H and the Department of Animal Sciences and Industry will provide virtual alternatives for each state contest. Providing youth with a quality educational opportunity remains a high priority of contest coordinators and the Livestock Sweepstakes committee – second only to health and safety during the current pandemic. Youth will be able to display, through virtual means, their abilities and showcase the knowledge they’ve developed while participating in livestock programs and projects. All contests will be hosted virtually during the scheduled weekend. Registration information, revised rules, a tentative schedule and more details for the alternative format are available on the 4-H Livestock Sweepstakes page of the KSU Youth Livestock Program website. Entries are due August 15. Extension units will still need to pre-enter all participants through Cvent, using the link distributed via email, by the deadline.
