We are cautiously optimistic that we will be able to send our NYS 4-H Dairy Challenge Team to Harrisburg for the Junior Dairy Management Contest this Fall. There is a $1,000 scholarship available to the highest scoring youth at this contest and we think it’s important to give New York youth these opportunities! The Harrisburg contest will be held on September 21st at 9am. Megan Weiboldt has graciously agreed to coach the team again this year.

We are going to host a virtual contest for Senior 4-Hers to determine the top NY individuals for our team. This will happen on August 30 at 6:30pm via Zoom. Seniors must be at least 14 years of age, but not reached their 19th birthday on or prior to January 1, 2021. It will be up to counties to determine how they select individuals to participate. If you are interested in participating, please reach out to your local educator ASAP! We will only be doing a Senior level contest, and only do individual rankings.
