Ohio 4-H Dog Bowl Contest

The primary objective of the Ohio 4-H Dog Bowl Contest is to provide an opportunity for youth involved in 4-H to demonstrate their knowledge of canine-related subject matter in a competitive setting where attitudes of friendliness and fairness prevail. The Dog Bowl Contest should provide an educational experience for both participants and spectators.

Dog Bowl will be held on Saturday, OCTOBER 17, at the Nationwide & Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center. Team entries must be postmarked by Thursday, SEPTEMBER 20. Team entry fees are $25.00.

Each county may enter two junior and two senior teams of four or five contestants. Team members must be 4-H members, but are not required to enroll in a 4-H dog project to participate. Cross-county teams are allowed to participate provided they follow team eligibility per the rules.
