Bexar County 4-H Club Swept District!


The Bexar County 4-H Entomology Clubs took home the blue ribbons this past weekend at the District 10 Fall Round Up Competition.

For Juniors (grades 3-5) and Intermediates (grades 6-8), this was THE competition for the year.  They studied hard for several months and their hard work paid off!  Two Junior teams took 1st and 2nd, with three individual placements.  The Intermediate team took 1st, with two individual placements.  And our Bexar County Seniors took first and will head on to state!  Two individual seniors also placed.

Bexar County took first in all team categories and all individual categories!  These kids are SMART!

If you are interested in joining 4-H to compete in entomology, learning all about specific insects, their orders, mouthparts, habitats, and more, join us for 2017!  The next competition will be December 2017, but you can compete in the collection contest in June 2017.

To join, contact our office at 210-631-0400 and ask to speak to someone about joining 4-H Entomology. Or contact me at mekeck@ag.tamu.edu.

We'll start collecting and organizing our collections once the weather warms up again... around March.
