The Monarchs on the Move Challenge is a part of the 4-H Ag Innovators Experience (4-H AIE), an annual program that challenges young people to apply critical thinking and STEM skills to a real-world agriculture challenge. Developed by National 4-H Council and Monsanto, the program helps develop critical workforce skills in young people, and demonstrates how agriculture can be fun! This year's activity is the Monarchs on the Move Challenge, created by Iowa State University. More than 5,000 youth across five states will be challenged to learn about monarch butterflies, pollination, and the need to work together to be good stewards of the land.
