Clarke County youth will have the opportunity to be awarded a Livestock Bowl Scholarship. The Livestock Bowl will be divided into the following divisions: (a) Beef, (b) Sheep,(c) Swine, and (d) Goats.
Each division is open to any Clarke County 4-H/FFA member. Each division will consist of four sections:

3. Stockman’s Quiz
4. Life skill Interview
Each of the four areas will be worth 50 points. The individual(s) with highest total point value and the second highest total point valuein each divisionwill receive Livestock Bowl Scholarship award money. All 2016 scholarship award money MUST be used toward the purchasing of a 2017 Fair Livestock Bowl animal (beef, sheep, swine or goat) or feed costs for a 2017 Livestock bowl animal. Proof of purchases using 2016 scholarship money must be provided to the Livestock Bowl committee before August 1 year of the show.
All Livestock Bowl animals will be raised, shown and sold at the 2017 Clarke County Fair. Should the Livestock Bowl animal not be shown and sold at the 2017 Clarke County Fair, the individual will not be eligible to receive the scholarship money. The individual with the highest total score in each division will select a scholarship award of their choice in one of the following categories: beef, sheep, swine, or goat; individuals with the next highest total score in that same division will receive a second place scholarship. A contestant may enter in all four (4) divisions, but may only be a winner in one (1) division.
