The Youth Challenge makes its return on Thursday at the 2018 Gogebic County Fair!      
Area youth will compete in a variety of fun events in which each team will compete to win prize money to help support their club.  Each team consists of 6 youth members between the ages of 14-19 years old.

A special handmade trophy will be presented to the winning team for them to proudly display. Some of the events in the past have included blindfolded wheelbarrow races, hay bale rolling, corn cob toss and a potato/spoon balance race. Each year brings new events which test a team's ability to work together towards a common goal and are designed to be both fun for the participants and something that the whole family can enjoy watching. If you are interested in registering your team or becoming a team sponsor, please contact Sandy at 906-932-2700 or [email protected]
