The purpose of the Clover Bowl is to acquaint 4-H members with themselves and their surroundings through participating in an enjoyable and educational program. In addition to this main purpose, it is hoped that this program will help participants develop leadership, teamwork and communication skills. Information for questions will be in the areas of 4-H, Tennessee (History, Geography, and Government), Agriculture, Life Skills, Government and Science.
The Clover Bowl began in 1994 in Wilson County. 4-H Agent Mitch Beaty saw the need for young people to become more knowledgeable in the areas of 4-H, Tennessee, Agriculture and Family and Consumer Sciences. This contest is now available to 64 counties. It is estimated over 10,000 4-H’ers participate in this contest on the county level.

- Optional for Agents and Educators: Print the Codes and Standards for your appropriate grade section.
- Bonus questions on the local and county level will be derived from material in existing Clover Bowl questions. They may be combined or reworded to form a new question.
