New Entomology Invitational Contest Announced

The Texas 4-H and Youth Development Program and the Entomology Department at Texas A&M is pleased to announce a new invitational contest that will be held at the 2014 Texas 4-H Roundup. The Invitational Entomology Collection Contest is open to all intermediate and senior 4-H members. The collection contest allows youth to learn more about insects and arthropods through collection, preservation and identification. Youth learn how to properly identify insects and arthropods to common name, arrange them in neat and organized, professional insect collection, and learn proper preservation tools to ensure that their collections can last for years. All collections must be complete and submitted to the individual's respected county or district office no later than May 9, 2014. For more information on the event please visit the links below.
