Lawmakers Learn from 4-H and FFA at the Oklahoma Youth ExpoThu, 18 Mar 2010 7:11:04 CDT
Wednesday is a transition day at the Oklahoma Youth Expo- and it's also a day where some of the young people get the opportunity to interact with state lawmakers from their home area during the annual Legislative Show at the OYE.
Over 60 lawmakers were at the State Fairgrounds on Wednesday evening- and most of the competed in a friendly way by showing a lamb, pig or calf, after receiving instruction from the 4-H or FFA owner of the animal.
There were species winners and one overall winner of the 2010 event. Dr. and State Rep. Brian Renegar of McAlester was declared the top swine showman, Senator Ron Justice of Chickasha won the Sheep Showman Award and Rep. Shane Jett of Tecumseh was the best Calf Showman. In the "Show- off" of the final three- Senator Ron Justice was declared the winner. The picture here is of Senator Justice and some of his Legislative colleagues as the event was winding down.
We talked with Senator Justice and you can hear that conversation by clicking on the Listen Bar below.
