The objective of the 4-H Insect Identification Contest is for contestants to learn basic biology of insects and related organisms, to be able to identify insects to the order level, and to be able to identify 100 of the more common insects and arachnids by their common name.

Although this study guide is primarily intended to help 4-H’ers prepare for the Insect Identification Contest, it can also be used by high school science teachers to help teach students about insects and insect identification. High school students who enjoy learning about insects and other wildlife might even want to participate in the 4-H Insect Identification Contest.
