From county fairs to pigs shows on a national level, there are always opportunities for youth education. Many exhibitions have skillathon or quiz bowl competitions built into their events. The Pork Checkoff has created a downloadable resource for teachers, Extension personal and other leaders to use for organizing these types of competitions. Resources for both skillathons and quiz bowls are divided into three age categories: junior, Intermediate and senior. A variety of subject areas are addressed, including breeding, animal well-being, swine health and other key topics.
