4-H clover 4-H Regional and State Project Bowls

Project Bowl is a long-standing program in Minnesota 4-H and is the second-most attended event of the year. In Project Bowl, teams of 3-5 youth build skills working and thinking together while testing their knowledge in these 4-H areas: dairy, dog, general livestock, horse, llama/alpaca, poultry, rabbit and wildlife.

In a traditional year, there are four regional bowls, which lead to the state competition. Each has two divisions: Junior (grades 3-8) and Senior (grades 4 through 4-H graduation). Regional winners advance to the 4-H State Project Bowl. Winners at the state level in dairy, general livestock, horse and poultry go on to national contests!

Get your friends together, recruit a coach, study hard, and most of all have fun during the project bowl season!

In 2021, the 4-H Project Bowl program is going virtual! Each species will compete online on a separate day in a fun team trivia contest. Teams of 3-5 members (still competing in the separate grade divisions) will work together to answer the questions. Top placing teams will be eligible for national competition opportunities if available. There won't be a State Project Bowl in 2021.
