2017 Outdoor Challenge Update and Results

Since this events conception in 2009, it has grown into a 132 participant weekend, filled with outdoor education, skills, and challenges. On June 16th of 2017, Texas 4-H members arrived in Seguin, Texas to participate in the Outdoor Challenge. Each participant competed in ten events as a member of a two-person team. Teams were divided into age division and team type: Co-Ed, Male, or Female. Events were conducted throughout the weekend, which included Kayaking, Shotgun, Fishing, Archery, Biking, Climbing, Biologist Skills, Safety, Outdoor Skills, and Gear Judging. Each event was scored out of 20 points and every team was able to drop their lowest scoring event. The high placing team of the Outdoor Challenge was a Co-Ed Intermediate team from Grimes and Montgomery County with a score of 164.5 out of a possible 180.  

Even though this event involves competition, participants from the across the state were able to gather and share a love for the outdoors. This event is meant to showcase many outdoor and wildlife project areas that are offered through Texas 4-H. The hope is that students will be pushed to learn something new while preparing for the Outdoor Challenge, and then go home after the event looking for ways to become more involved. 

Below you will find the link to the Outdoor Education & Living Skills page, where you can learn more about this event, and see the 2017 Results page off the contest tab.

Congratulations to all participants! We hope to see you next year.
