Do you have a flock of laying hens that are currently laying? If yes, you should participate in the statewide egg contest! Please read through everything very carefully. If you have any questions, you may contact Kendra (Livestock Agent) or Taylor (4-H Agent) at 336-593-8179.

The Egg-cellent Egg Contest is $15 and is open to youth who have a flock of laying hens currently laying. All youth will be required to enroll with 4-HOnline if not already enrolled. Youth will register via their 4-HOnline profile. Participants who complete the project will receive a t-shirt. Cloverbuds will receive medals and older age categories will receive ribbons and award money if they get 1st-3rd place in one of the color/size categories.

The whole contest is virtual and there is a Google site that houses all of the information they need. A link to the Google site will be sent to participants once registration is over. There are two mandatory trainings the participants must attend. They can join the live Zoom or view the recording. If they view the recording, they will have to let their 4-H and/or livestock agent know when they have watched so they can get checked off.

Youth can submit up to 2 dozen eggs as long as they are in two different categories. There are three color categories (white, brown, blue/green) and multiple size categories. The Area Specialized Poultry Agents will help coordinate with the agents in their counties to get the eggs to Raleigh for judging. Below are important dates (these are also included on several of the advertising things).
  • Registration by September 6 (in 4-HOnline)

  • Payment received by September 14 – if not received by this date, the youth will not be able to participate
