Wisconsin 4-H Foundation and Wisconsin Beef Council Host Youth Beef Farmer Highlight Contest

Madison, WI: Wisconsin 4-H Foundation and Wisconsin Beef Council announced a social media contest that will feature Wisconsin 4-H Beef Exhibitors throughout the month of July. Community members, family, and friends will have the opportunity to nominate a 4-H member who has achieved outstanding work during their time in the program.

In the past four years, the Wisconsin 4-H Beef Project has averaged 3,500 participants per year. Up to 2020, the number of participants have steadily increased, making the beef project one of the most popular programs in the state. 66 out of the 72 Wisconsin counties have an active 4-H Beef Program. The Wisconsin 4-H Program serves around 30,000 youth across the state.

Throughout this month until July 21st. To nominate a 4-H member, a nominator can:

Each youth nominated will be featured on the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation page, as well as receive the opportunity to win a prize package that includes 4-H branded BOGS, a $50 Culvers Gift Card, and a 4-H Swag Bag. Facebook users will have the opportunity to ‘vote’ for their favorite 4-H Beef Farmer by ‘liking’ their photo and caption; the 4-Her with the most likes by the end of the week will receive the prize package.

The contest will end on July 31st, with the announcement of the winner on August 1st. Nominees must be a Wisconsin 4-H member and enrolled in the Wisconsin Beef Project.

The Wisconsin 4-H Foundation and Wisconsin Beef Council encourage social media users to include #Wi4HCelebratesBeefTogether on their social media posts throughout their time at county fairs this summer.
