The 2020 State 4-H Livestock Judging Contest will be held on Sunday, September 20th at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln Animal Science Complex. Registration/Check-in will be at 7:00 AM that morning with the contest beginning at 8:00 AM. As of now, the National 4-H Livestock Judging Contest is moving forward as planned, and our state-level contest is vital for a team to qualify for the national level.

There will be changes to this year’s contest:

This will be a senior division only contest. Each team will be limited to 5 contestants and only one coach and one other chaperone if needed.
Everyone attending the contest will wear a mask and hand sanitizing stations will be present throughout the facility.
Livestock classes will be arranged in a more spread-out fashion and we may implement a 2-round system for the placings portion of the contest.
Youth will maintain at least a 10-foot distance from the reasons takers during that portion of the competition.
We will not arrange a live awards ceremony on site. Awards will be announced online. Awards will be mailed.
We will not provide any pencils, clipboards, paper, etc. Each team must bring their own materials. We will only handout placing cards and contestant numbers in the team packets.
We will not provide lunch. We plan to have the contest finished by 1:00-2:00 PM.
If a hotel room is needed for Saturday night, the Staybridge Suites I-80 will be providing a special rate.

Registration is open now and will close at noon on Wednesday, September 16th.
