More about the Rabbit Show

Did you know a rabbit has five toes on the front feet and four on the back feet? Rabbits are easily trained to use a litter box, just as a cat does. Contrary to popular belief, rabbits cannot live on lettuce and carrots alone. All of the young people exhibiting rabbits learn these and many more facts as they complete their projects. Record keeping is an important aspect of all our animal projects, and a completed record book must be turned in before the show in order for the students to compete.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is my child eligible? Any student older than 8 years of age and up, who attends the mandatory meeting and pays entry fee, is a member of a 4H club or FFA chapter, and either lives in or goes to school in Marion County may enter this contest.

How much does it cost? $3 entry fee per head ($15 maximum per exhibitor).
