2016 4-H Agriculture Innovators Experience
Nebraska Youth Summit on Climate
Nebraska Cattlemen's Classic Judging Contest
Nebraska Extension and the Nebraska Corn Board are offering the fifth Innovative Youth Corn Challenge contest. This contest, open to 4-H members (age 10 & older as of Jan. 1st) or FFA members (in-school members), guides participants through all aspects of corn production, as well as agricultural careers related to corn production.
As a team, youth will be challenged to implement a production practice different than normal to determine if they increased their yield. Economics and sustainability of the practice will also be considered. Yields, cropping history, and production information will be collected in the Corn Yield Challenge management summary.
To participate in 2016, youth must complete and return an entry form by March 15, 2016, to the Fillmore County Extension Office in Geneva, NE. Forms can be downloaded in January from http://cropwatch.unl.edu/youth/activities.
