Submitted by Robyn Trussel

We would like to share the upcoming Annual NW 4-H Judging Event and Super Saturday with all of our Kansas 4-H and FFA youth and families. This event has been going on since the early 70's and even though it has changed over the years it is still a great judging opportunity for 4-H & FFA youth to participate in. NW 4-H Judging Event and Super Saturday will be held on Saturday, March 23rd this year at the Fort Hays State University - Albertson Hall and Livestock Pavillion.  

There will be judging contests available in Crops, Entomology, Horticulture, Life Skills,  Livestock, Livestock Skill-a-thon and Photography. The cost of the judging contest is $7.00 per youth. Sack lunches will be available for $8.00. The daily agenda will look like this:
