Skillathon FAQs

What is Skillathon?

Skillathon is a fun test of your knowledge using interactive stations but is not a written test like you would take in school. Stations are more intentional, and youth are encouraged to describe and demonstrate what they have learned.  

Do I need to bring my project book?

Nope! Project books are not checked at Skillathon anymore. Instead, project books will begin being checked at the 2024 Livestock Project Book Interviews.

Do I need to bring my animals?

Nope! All animals can stay home.

Why should I participate?

Generous folks sponsored AWESOME prizes to give to winners. If no one wins, who do we give prizes to? It just might be you!
