The ARBA Youth Department
The American Rabbit Breeders Association is committed to the development and expansion of the ARBA Youth Department as a means to engage young rabbit and cavy members in reaching their fullest potential – both as knowledgeable and accomplished participants in the rabbit/cavy hobby and as responsible adults capable of contributing in positive ways to the hobby and society in general.
ARBA youth activities and contests provide a variety of enrichment activities that encourage youth participants to develop knowledge and skill regarding rabbit and cavy husbandry; responsibility, teamwork, and leadership. These skills enable youth members to thrive and succeed throughout their lives – within and outside of the hobby.
Congratulations to all the winners and participants of the 2020 ARBA Youth Contests!

In addition to the four contests listed above, the Youth Department has several downloadable files to help you succeed when competing in contests, conventions & shows.
