JUNIOR SHOWMANSHIP COMPETITION

Junior Showmanship provides youth exhibitors an opportunity to showcase their knowledge and skills pertaining to exhibition poultry in front of a qualified judge. The competition is designed to be both fun and educational. Competitors will be divided into three divisions: Junior Class (ages 10 & under), Intermediate Class (ages 11-13), and Senior Class (ages 14-18). Participants are required to bring their own bird for this event. They are advised to use one that the contender knows well and is easy to handle, as the individual, rather than the bird, will be judged and scored in this event.

The entry fee for this competition is $5 and can be found on the show entry form. Youth may additionally sign up for the event on the day of the show. Mikaela Batey will return as the showmanship judge in 2023.
