Poultry Judging Contest Canceled!

After further discussion, it is of the best interest of the UNL Poultry Department to cancel the 2015 PASE Poultry Contest. This cancellation comes as an effort to prevent the spread of the highly pathogenic H5N2 avian influenza to the research flock on site. We will not be offering an alternative contest but anticipate to offer a national contest opportunity through a Nebraska State Fair 4-H Poultry Show.

Each summer, over 500 4-H'ers convene at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln East Campus to test their skills in animal science and family and consumer sciences during PASE (Premier Animal Science Events) and Life Challenge. Teens compete in a variety of different contests including: livestock, meats and poultry judging, livestock skill-a-thon, livestock quiz bowl, life challenges and clover challenge. While on campus, youth have the opportunity to take part in faculty-led workshops, campus tours, and special sessions by UNL recruiters.

PASE and Life Challenge will be held June 28 - 30, 2015. Contest entry timeline is May 18 through 5:00 pm CST June 12, 2015.
