The National 4-H Wildlife Habitat Evaluation Program (WHEP) is designed to teach youth about the fundamentals of wildlife and fisheries science and management. The state contest is the culmination of months of work by county 4-H programs, which form teams and practice and study with adult volunteer leaders for the state competition. Natural resources management is learned through participation in the event and the associated educational programs. Youth who participate benefit in the development of life skills and meeting other young people and professionals from around the state who have interests in natural resources.
