This is the second win for Georgia in competition history and the first National Championship for Oconee County. Team members are: (Front) Coach Henry Hibbs and Jared Daniel (Back L to R) Godfrey Hendrix, Colton Lowder and Meghan Mitchell. After placing first in the Georgia 4-H Dairy Quiz Bowl in January 2013, the Oconee County team qualified to compete in the North American Invitational 4-H Dairy Quiz Bowl. The competition was held at the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center, in Louisville, Kentucky on November 8-9, 2013. This was the 34th national contest and a total of 19 teams competed. The Dairy Bowl is a contest where teams of four members compete against each other. Competition points are awarded for correctly answering questions relating to dairy topics such as: dairy production and management, breeds, feeding and nutrition, dairy products, health and reproduction. The competition consisted of three phases: a written test, team questions, and a toss-up round. The winning team was determined by the highest total score of all three phases. Oconee Co. had tremendous success in the Written Test: Godfrey Hendrix was High Individual, Colton Lowder was 5th and Jared Daniel was 9th. Competition in the 4-H Dairy Bowl encourages 4-H members to develop a more complete knowledge of dairy animals and related subjects. This contest provides an educational dairy program for all dairy project members, including those who may not own a dairy project animal, and provides a way to develop alertness, self-confidence and cooperation. Congratulations again to the Oconee County 4-H Dairy Quiz Bowl team for their success at the National 4-H Dairy Quiz Bowl!
