County-Wide Quality Assurance offered via Zoom
In 2021 county-wide QA programs will be offered by OSU through Zoom meetings. This option requires an internet connection.
The dates are:
April 13 at 6:30 p.m.
April 29 at 6:30 p.m.
Zoom links were mailed to all 4-H members taking livestock projects as well as local FFA Advisors. Please look for this link well in advance of the program and let us know if you cannot locate it.
4-H Club-Level QA Programs
Individual clubs may host QA training through Zoom or at face-to-face meetings in accordance with all current health guidelines. Club programs must have a certified assistant instructor lead the program, using the approved county-wide QA program. Programs completed through FFA are also accepted.
Options for 4-H Age 15 & Older
OSU Extension offers an ODA approved test-out option for youth 4-H age 15 and older. Youth who score a 70% or higher on the 50 question test are exempted from QA requirements for the remainder of their Jr Fair years.
This Test will not be offered virtually. To test out, you will need to make an appointment before May 1st by calling the Extension Office at (419) 334-6340. Ag Education teachers (FFA Advisors) who are certified to teach QA may also offer the test. (Both 4-H and FFA must use the current year's ODA approved test)
