Save the dates! EGG-cellent Egg Contest.

A group of livestock and 4-H agents started the Egg-cellent Egg Contest in 2020 and realized there was interest to expand to allow youth from across the state to participate.

The Egg-cellent Egg Contest is $15 and is open to youth who have a flock of laying hens currently laying. All youth will be required to enroll with 4-H Online if not already enrolled.

Participants who complete the project will receive a t-shirt. Cloverbuds will receive medals and older age categories will receive ribbons and award money if they get 1st-3rd place in one of the color/size categories.

There are two mandatory trainings the participants must attend. Trainings are conducted via live Zoom

Youth can submit up to 2 dozen eggs as long as they are in two different categories. There are three color categories (white, brown, blue/green) and multiple size categories.

Below are important dates (these are also included on several of the advertising things).

  • Registration by Sept 9

  • Checks received by Sept 23 – if not received by this date, the youth will not be able to participate

  • Initial Zoom – Sept 13 at 5:30

  • In-depth Zoom – Sept 27
    5:30 p.m.-6:15 p.m. cb/jr
