Ohio State Fair 4-H Rabbit Quiz Bowl Contest

The primary purpose of the Rabbit Quiz Bowl Contest is to provide an opportunity for 4-H members to demonstrate their knowledge of rabbit-related subject matter in a competitive setting where attitudes of friendliness and fairness prevail. The Rabbit Quiz Bowl Contest should provide an educational experience for both participants and spectators.
