Brown County collaborated with kids from Blue Earth, Watonwan and Cottonwood Counties to form two Horse Bowl teams. Horse Bowl is the second most attended event all year within the 4-H competition! Patterned after the golden-oldie television show College Bowl, 4-H Project Bowls challenge teams of 3-6 youth on their knowledge of these 4-H areas: Dairy, dog, general livestock, horse, lama, poultry, rabbit and wildlife.
There are four regional bowls, which lead to the state competition. Each has two divisions: Junior (grades 3-8) and Senior (grades 4-4-H graduation). Regional winners advance to the 4-H State Project Bowl. Winners at the state level in dairy, general livestock, horse, poultry and wildlife go on to national contests!
Members of the Jr Brown/Blue Earth team which are advancing to State Competion after being Reserve Champions are Andrew Hellendrung, Madeline Dubke, Caidence Kucera, Houston Jensen and Talia Schueler. Members of the Brown/ Watonwan/Cottonwood team are Jade Jensen, Brooke Johnson, Trinity Larson and Ian Malinowski.
