WA State 4-H Livestock Logo.

The 2023 Washington 4-H State Livestock Judging Contest is scheduled for June 24, 2023, and will be held at the Ardell Pavilion, centered on the Grant County Fairgrounds.  Contest guidelines and rules with NEW for 2023 updates are linked in below and are up for viewing on the Washington 4-H website.   Additionally, the travel guidelines document and  fillable registration forms specific to Junior, Intermediate and Senior contest registrations are linked below.  Again as in 2022, the 2023 contest has NO Requirement for Qualifying, just come and participate.

This will be our second year hosting the Livestock Judging Contest at the Grant County Fairgrounds in Moses Lake, WA.   The committee is looking forward to another successful contest year. In 2022 we had three senior teams that traveled to national 4-H contests representing the Evergreen state.

New for 2023:

  • There will be a registration deadline this year for early registration.  June 9, 2023 – all registration materials signed by the county extension professional (specialist, educator, coordinator, administrative, etc.) will be due by end of day to qualify for early registration fees ($15/team; $5/individual).  Late registrations will be accepted with a late fee charged ($10/individual).  All fees (check, credit or cash) will be collected the day of the contest.
  • Teams and coaches will need to be prepared to identify the contests they would like to travel to by the end of the state contest.  If the first place team has not determined that when asked then they will forfeit first choice and so on.  So – coaches and parents PLEASE be prepared before you come to the contest to compete.
  • Also new will be a dress code (see guidelines appropriate dress). Key no hats, torn or ripped or frayed jeans, no shorts, and no t-shirts with graphics or written sentiments.

Registrations will need to be sent to and CC by end of day June 9, 2023.  Late registrations will be charged a late registration fee.  Any questions about the contest? Please contact Paul Kuber
