The Door County Dairy Quiz Bowl Team took second place in the 4-H Dairy Bowl in Madison on Saturday, securing their place in the National Dairy Quiz Bowl in September. The 4-H Dairy Bowl competition encourages members to develop a more complete knowledge of dairy animals and related subjects. Teams of four members compete with each other in giving oral answers to questions posed by a moderator. Rich Olson, the coach of the Door County Dairy Quiz Bowl Team, says that he truly enjoys his role helping the students prepare for this important contest.
The team will travel to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania in September to compete in the National Dairy Quiz Bowl contest, as representatives of the Dairy State with hopes of ranking high against other states’ teams. Olson says that the students have worked hard studying weekly since October in preparation, and he is very proud of the team and their successful day in Madison.
