Youth sought to showcase their ‘Livestock Lessons’ – Round 2

Great news!  We are releasing the next round of Livestock Lessons ending on March 5, 2021.  The potential topics for your lessons are endless!  We would love for you to submit your 4-H demonstrations, FFA public speaking entries, any videos, and written work that aligns with the work your already doing.  This time period will allow us to see you talk about acquiring your animal project or caring for newborn animals.  No matter what topic you choose, remember that the most impactful presentations are both accurate and engaging. Be creative, be funny, be serious, just be you! Think about something you have learned in your animal science project or something that you enjoy doing and prepare to share it.

Round 2 of the Wisconsin Livestock Lessons will include many ways for youth to show their work and interests.

For grades 3-8: (only one submission per category)
1.  An Oral Video presentation
2.  Written Public Service Announcement (PSA)

For grades 9-13th: (only one submission per category)
1.  An Oral Video presentation
2.  Written Public Service Announcement (PSA)
3   SAE Project Slides

Livestock Lessons are open to all youth who are interested in animal projects. Each youth can enter one submission in both oral presentations and written public service announcements, and for older youth grades 9-13th they can submit an entry in the SAE Project Slides. The SAE Project Slides are a new addition to assist older youth in framing out topics of interest and explore careers, which can assist them in completing their SAE application.  Submitted entries will be divided into the following grade judging categories from the 2020-2021 school year. Junior (Grades 3-5), Intermediate (Grades 6-8) and Senior (Grades 9-13).

Submissions are due March 5.  The top entries in each division will receive monetary awards and may be featured on Wisconsin Youth Livestock Program social media, YouTube channels and other media outlets.
