Youth enjoy 2021 Nevada State 4-H Expo

Annual Expo for youth showcases knowledge and skills

Many Nevada 4-H youth were happy to once again have the opportunity to participate in person this year at the 2021 Nevada State 4-H Expo held at  the Winnemucca Events Complex. Every year, the Nevada State 4-H Expo event aims to showcase the hard work 4-H members have put into their projects with a lighthearted competition, thus promoting and providing the incentive for achieving excellence in sportsmanship, leadership and responsibility.

This year, about 100 youth attended and competed in activities such as shooting sports; livestock breeding for beef, sheep, swine, and goats; demonstrations and static exhibits; fashion review; poultry and dog shows; teen leadership workshops; the National STEM Challenge; and a Quiz Bowl.

    Nevada 4-H youth compete in the senior sheep showmanship at this year’s Expo.
