They are (from left) Dylan Kensy, RaeAnna Danielson, Hannah Minicucci, Claire Grube, Rachel Minicucci. Hannah (center) took first place in the U.S. in the individual competition with a record high score in the game-show-like knowledge competition. 

The Chisago County 4-H Horse Bowl team represented Minnesota and took third place overall at the National Quarter Horse Congress Competition on Oct. 15 in Columbus, Ohio.

In individual competition, member Hannah Minicucci came in first place in the nation with a record high score.

Patterned after the golden-oldie television show “College Bowl,” 4-H Project Bowls challenge teams of three to six youth on their knowledge of these 4-H areas: dairy, dog, general livestock, horse, llama, poultry, rabbit and wildlife.  

Youth have fun learning and competing together in this popular 4-H event. For anyone interested in participating in local project bowl teams, registrations will be happening soon. Contact the Extension Office at 651-277-0150 or email Extension educator Jeremy Freeman at jeremyf@umn.edu.
