Teams are comprised of four to five members and are divided by age for junior and senior divisions. The competition setting is similar to that of quiz bowl or Jeopardy. Members sit side-by-side and answer questions individually and as a team. The questions are developed from their 4-H project books and a few outside national resources. Horse Bowl emphasizes learning, team work and sportsmanship skills. For more information contact Coach: Lisa Kuhn 614-746-7634.
The Licking County 4-H Horse & Pony Council meetings are held on the second Monday of every month at 7:00 p.m. at the Licking County Extension Office.
