4-H clover Minnesota 4-H Dairy Showcase

"Recognizing the involvement, dedication, and passion of Minnesota's dairy youth."

The Minnesota 4-H Dairy Showcase is a unique recognition program that provides cash awards to recognize the involvement, passion, and dedication of Minnesota’s 4-H dairy youth. The program would not be possible without the support of businesses and organizations committed to the future of the Minnesota’s dairy industry. The 4-H Dairy Showcase takes place at the conclusion of the Minnesota State Fair 4-H livestock encampment.

    2020 4-H Dairy Showcase update

    The Minnesota 4-H Dairy Showcase is embracing the unexpected circumstances that 2020 brought us and will be proceeding with a unique, meaningful recognition program. This year's program will recognize those 4-H members who are nearing the end of their 4-H careers.

    All 4-H Dairy Project members in grades 12 and 13 will be eligible to apply for this special edition of the Minnesota 4-H Dairy Showcase. There will be NO requirement that 4-H'ers exhibit at the State 4-H Dairy Show – live or virtual. This effort seeks to recognize the dairy program’s senior members and provide a capstone celebration for their 4-H dairy career.

    Showcase recipients will be selected based on their leadership and accomplishments in 4-H and their community (70%), and a virtual presentation demonstrating their knowledge of the dairy industry (30%). Winners will be announced at a virtual program at the end of August and receive a cash prize.

    The announcement of showcase winners will be announced on the Minnesota 4-H Dairy Showcase Facebook Page on Aug 27 at 8 p.m
