Requesting Tickets

Agents/Agriculture Education Teachers are able to request complimentary exhibitor tickets, purchase additional guest tickets, and order t-shirts from the Georgia Junior National Livestock Show Online Registration site:  Please access the site and sign-in using your already created username and password. Then select the Banquet Fee’s “Payment Instructions Link,” on the county or chapter’s front page.  The following instructions will appear: 


You must indicate which exhibitors will be attending the banquet and Dance. If you do not select any of your county exhibitors individually, we will not have a record of who you have requested for and we will not designate any tickets for your county/chapter. Please be accurate and true when you order your complimentary exhibitor tickets. We must order a meal for each ticket ordered online and have found in the past that some Agents/Agriculture Education Teachers just order a ticket for every person when the exhibitor does not intend on attending. To help reduce the opportunity for increased fees, please be accurate with your order.


1.            Indicate what type of tickets each exhibitor will have.

1.            Click on each exhibitor's name

2.            Find the "Attributes" section highlighted in Green.

3.            Select all of the attributes that apply to that individual


*Exhibitors may either attend the banquet and dance or either the banquet or the dance. By selecting both the banquet and dance option, they will receive one ticket allowing them to enter the banquet and the dance, even if they choose not to attend the dance. If they select the dance only option, they will receive one ticket allowing them to enter the dance and will not be allowed admittance into the banquet.


**If the student has been recognized as a Market Lamb and/or Market Goat Record Book Winner and would like to request one (1) adult complimentary ticket per species, they must select that option and provide the exhibitor Division(s) (Pre-Club 1, Pre-Club 2, Junior or Senior) in the notes section provided on the award winner’s individual page.


For those Record Book Winners (Steer, Heifer, Commercial Dairy Heifer and Hogs) will be posted on the specie show office once judging is complete on Friday, February 22nd. Each exhibitor that is being recognized at the banquet will have a complimentary adult ticket at will call (please check in at 6:30 pm at the Miller-Murphy-Howard Building-Record Book Award Winner Gathering) as these individuals (exhibitors) will have preferred seating. Please go ahead and purchase an adult ticket for every Record Book Contestant (Steer, Heifer, Commercial Dairy Heifer and Hog) and if the individual (exhibitor) is recognized, we will work with the county/chapter to provide reimbursement after the event (reimbursements may be requested to my office, through email no later than February 25th.)
