On November 18, 2010, nine 4-H'ers represented Pennsylvania in four contest areas at the National 4-H Poultry and Egg Conference in Louisville, Kentucky.

The Pennsylvania Poultry Judging Team from Lebanon County placed 5th high team overall, 4th in the Market Poul-try division, and 10th in Production hens and Oral Reasons division. The team members were Ashley Shaw, Dylan Lape, Hannah Misner and Dualton Lape. Ashley Shaw placed 9th high overall individual and 3rd high individual in the market poultry division. Dylan Lape placed 14th high overall individual and 7th in the market poultry division. The team was coached by Dana Lape of Lebanon, PA with assistance from Phillip Clauer of State College. There were 19 teams and 77 individuals in this year’s contest.

In the National Avian Bowl Contest, Pennsylvania was seated second after the quiz and placed fifth in the double elimination Bowl portion of the event. The team members were Kelly Beltz, Brandon Schaufler, and Rebecca Martin all from the Centre County
4-H Poultry Club. The team was coached and chaperoned by Sandy Haagan. Eleven teams participated in this year’s national competition.

Heidi Benner of Adams County placed 2nd in the highly competitive National 4-H Egg Cookery and Presentation

contest. Megan Klawitter placed 5th in the National Chicken Barbeque and Presentation contest.

Youth are strongly encouraged to participate in one of these poultry contests in the future. These activities pro-vide exceptional learning experiences, a lot of fun, and excellent awards. Since 2002, Pennsylvania offered state contests in Poultry Judging, Chicken and Turkey Barbecue Presentations, and Avian Bowl, and Pennsylvania dele-gates have placed very well in this national event annually. This year Pennsylvania was not able to take a full delega-tion due to lack of participation at the state level. If you are interested in these events in the future, contact Phillip J. Clauer (e-mail: pclauer@psu.edu, phone: 814-863-8960) for more information. The PA State 4-H Poultry website (http://ulisse.cas.psu.edu/pa4h/contest.html) also has in-formation about these events.

Recognition and thanks go to PennAg Industries Asso-ciation Poultry Council and U.S. Poultry and Egg As-sociation for helping to sponsor the Pennsylvania delega-tion for this trip and for helping sponsor the National 4-H Poultry and Egg Conference.
