AFR Hosts 2013 Ag Achievement Contest; Registration Closes March 18th



American Farmers & Ranchers/Oklahoma Farmers Union (AFR/OFU) is teaming up with the Oklahoma Youth Expo (OYE) again this year to host the 2013 AFR/OFU Agricultural Achievement Contest. This year's various contest events will be March 19-23, coinciding with many OYE activities. The final awards presentation will be March 26.


The annual contest recognizes the outstanding youth in Oklahoma who display exceptional showmanship skills and possess extensive knowledge of the livestock industry, including production, management, processing and end product utilization. Each year, AFR/OFU presents $5,000 in prizes to the organization's Youth Agricultural Achievement Award winners.


Competitors in the AFR/OFU Ag Achievement Contest are judged on showmanship ability and test scores from a written examination on all phases of the livestock industry, including current events. Contestants' combined test and showmanship scores determine the top ten individuals. The top ten are then interviewed regarding their individual livestock project and the livestock industry as a whole.


Registration for the 2013 AFR/OFU Agricultural Achievement Contest closes Monday, March 18, at 5 p.m. Participation in the AFR Agricultural Achievement Contest is limited to Oklahoma junior and senior high school students who exhibit an animal at this year's Oklahoma Youth Expo. For more information on the contest or other AFR youth events, contact AFR Youth & Education Coordinator Lin Fariss at (405)218-5561 or lfariss@afrmic.com.


AFR and its sister organization, Oklahoma Farmers Union, provide the youth of Oklahoma varied opportunities to develop into the leaders of tomorrow. The AFR/OFU Ag Achievement Contest is just one of several exciting AFR Youth Program traditions. AFR hosts a poster contest, summer youth leadership summit, a fall speech contest, statewide scholarships, livestock handling and skills contest, livestock judging and grading, and many other leadership opportunities.
