Attention Juniors and Seniors in High School andParents:

Scholarships, Money, or Prizes...... For all participants.

Sound too good to be true? It's not.

The "BUT"? Is ONLY to pay the registration fee and sign up by March 15.

The Georgia Junior Cattlemen's Association is again sponsoring a great contest and scholarship opportunity. The 5th Annual Beef Industry Scholarship Challenge will be Saturday, May 9, 2009 at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in Tifton, Ga.

Ten teams will be accepted in the competition, with preference given to Georgia residents. Teams will consist of three members and can be juniors and/or seniors in high school as of January 1, the year of the competition. Juniors may compete again as seniors unless they are on the first place team. Team members do not need to be from the same high school or county.

Teams will work through 10 challenging stations in a 25-minute rotation. The 10 stations include handling and health, nutrition, marketing, seedstock merchandising, keep-cull replacement heifers, job interview, beef industry issues, reproduction, beef management challenge, and credit and finance.
