The Wisconsin 4-H Dairy Quiz Bowl is back for 2023!

The 2023 contest will be held on February 25, 2023 at UW Green Bay at the STEM Innovation building.

The Dairy Bowl is a “quiz bowl” competition where all questions deal with dairy topics. Competition in the 4-H Dairy Bowl encourages a 4-H member to develop a more complete knowledge of dairy animals and related subjects. This contest provides an educational dairy program for all dairy project members, including those who may not own a dairy project animal, and provides a way to develop alertness, self-confidence, teamwork skills, and mastery in the area of dairy science.

Teams of four members compete with each other in giving oral answers to questions posed by a moderator. Teams receive points for correct answers and may lose points for incorrect answers. The team with the highest final score is the winner.

Teams are divided into three age divisions and teams can consist of 3 or 4 members. The junior division is youth who are under 14 years of age as of Jan.1 of the year of competition. The senior division is youth who are all 14 years of age or older as of Jan. 1, of the year of competition. A mixed team must contain at least one youth from each age division.

The contest is organized on a double-elimination basis with winning teams advancing into further rounds until a champion team emerges.
