This year’s Youth Educational Challenges allow 6th – 12th grade students the opportunity to put their skills to the test. With six competitive categories, students can participate in junior and senior level floral design, and identification contests for agricultural mechanics, horticulture, forestry, wildlife, and animal science. Students from all states were able to participate. The top three winners from each category in junior and senior divisions will be awarded. Awards will also be given to the club or chapter with the best overall finish, and the state with the best overall finish. Students from University of Georgia Tifton Campus and Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College volunteered to help with the Youth Educational Challenges. The Sunbelt Ag Expo was proud to host the second annual Youth Educational Challenges in the R.W. Griffin Building.
