The Livestock Skillathon is open to enrolled members of Alabama 4-H. Each Alabama county may enter a team in each of the following age divisions:
- Junior Division: 4-H members who are between 9 and 11 years old before January 1.
- Intermediate Division: 4-H members who are 12 or 13 years old before January 1.
- Senior Division: 4-H members who are between 14 and 18 years old before January 1.
A team may consist of up to four members, but only the top three individual overall scores will be included. Counties with more than four contestants in a particular age division may have multiple teams, but the number of contestants per team may not exceed four. Teams consisting of three members will not have an alternate and all members’ scores will count toward individual and team awards.
All contestants will report promptly to the Skillathon testing location. Contestants will be allowed 15 minutes to complete each of the ten individual competition classes. Senior teams will be allowed 20 minutes to complete team activities.
