State 4-H Hippology Contest

Save the date! 

The primary objective of the Hippology Contest is to provide, in a friendly but competitive setting, an opportunity for youth enrolled in 4-H to demonstrate the breadth of their knowledge and understanding of equine science, and in particular the practical application of this knowledge and skill.  Participants do not need to have horses or be enrolled in the horse project to participate. Regional qualification is required for this event.

Participation in regional contests is open to any youth within Illinois 4-H.  Any 4-H member that wants to participate must be registered for the appropriate regional contest through their county extension office.  Participants must individually qualify for the state contest at their respective regional Hippology Contest.  Here is a map of the regions and please contact your local Extension Office for regional contest questions.

If you need a reasonable accommodation to participate, please contact: Debra Hagstrom
