Four-H Bike Rodeo and Safety Event to be Conducted Virtually

Four-H Bike Rodeo and Safety Event to be Conducted Virtually

 

The bi-annual Grant County 4-H bike rodeo and safety event will look much different this year. Instead of many youth congregating at the Grant County 4-H grounds with their bikes, the event will be conducted virtually. William Karels, Grant County 4-H member and event chairperson, is working with community leaders to provide a virtual experience. 
The event will take place Monday through Friday, May 18-22 on Facebook through the 2020 4-H Bike Rodeo and Safety group. Throughout the week, educational videos from the Milbank Police Department, Milbank Area Hospital Avera, and Karels will be posted. 
There will still be a coloring contest for youth. Winners of the coloring contest will receive Ol’ Mill Bucks to use in the community. Coloring contest sheets are available to print from the Facebook group or for pickup outside the SDSU Extension-Grant County 4-H office (located on the east side of the courthouse). Completed coloring sheets are due to the office by May 20. 
In addition, two bikes will again be given away to a participating boy and girl. To be entered into the bike drawing, youth will need to complete a short assessment with questions from the educational videos. 
The rodeo and safety event are available to all youth, but the bike drawing and coloring contest are open to youth in kindergarten through fifth grade, or ages five to 12 in Grant County. Contact the SDSU Extension-Grant County 4-H office at 432-9221 with any questions.
