Swine Skill-a-thon

The Swine Skill-a-thon is a knowledge-based competition designed to enhance the educational experience of exhibiting swine by incorporating production and industry perspectives for the Texas 4-H and FFA exhibitors. Contestants will be challenged with questions, skill stations, and a public speaking component encompassing various facets of the swine industry. This contest is not only designed for those exhibitors who exhibit swine projects, but also those students who simply have a strong interest in the swine industry. Exhibitors compete in age divisions, Junior, Intermediate, and Senior with the subject matter tailored for that age group.

Quiz Bowl

Quiz bowls are a valuable teaching technique regardless of the subject matter being quizzed. They present project information in a semi-competitive setting characterized by attitudes of friendliness, cooperation and fairness. A quiz bowl is not meant to be a memorization process, in that members only study questions and know the answers to those questions. It is a motivational tool to provide a fun way to encourage members to learn project information.
