2020 is only half over and, as everyone knows, it’s been a time of change and challenge.

That’s true for youth programming, too. In a normal year, for example, Poultry Extension hosts the 4-H Avian Bowl competition as a face-to-face event.

The event gathers teams from around North Carolina to compete in a quiz bowl. Teams learn avian trivia, then go head-to-head to see which team knows the most.

It’s a fun, fast-paced game similar to Jeopardy! – with something avian as every category.

This year, though, the event couldn’t be held in the normal way. Instead, Mary Fosnaught, Extension Agent for Poultry 4-H and Youth Development, adapted the event for online participation using an application from QuizBowl Systems.

Participants play as teams, with teams divided into Junior and Senior levels.

Junior teams came from Bladen, Catawba, Craven, Edgecombe, Rowan and Rutherford Counties.

Senior teams came from Bladen, Catawba and Rutherford Counties.

And, the winners are…

Junior division

  1. Rutherford Co.
  2. Craven Co.
  3. Catawba Co.

Senior division

  1. Catawba Co.
  2. Rutherford Co.
  3. Bladen Co.

Congratulations to the winning teams and all the participants in the first virtual 4-H Avian Bowl!
