Quay County Contest Information

Site Under Construction. Check back in April for study Material

County Contest is the qualifying contest for 4-Hers to go on to District and State competitions. Some contests are held prior to the contest day because of logistics. We ask 4-Hers to pre-register, so we will have enough supplies and will know how many judges to get. The form is below. You may pre-register by faxing, calling, or e-mailing.

In order to participate in a shooting sports or clothing contest you must be enrolled in the project associated with the contest. All other contests are open.

District sign up meeting will be held immediately following county contest awards.

State sign up will be held during county contest day. If you can not be a county contest day, make arrangements to pick up your packet prior to the meeting.
