Subject: Livestock Exhibitors - Showmanship Point Circuit

Dear Ag Agents and Ag Teachers – Greetings from the Georgia Junior
Livestock Foundation!  I wanted to remind everyone that the GJLF
Showmanship Point Circuit entry forms must be post marked by May 1.  Please
forward this on to all of your livestock exhibitors.  Everyone that
participates will get a free T-shirt!

The GJLF wishes to recognize youth exhibitors that have excelled in the
show ring with their showmanship skills and participation. Awards will be
broken out into five different species to include Beef, Swine, Dairy, Goat
and Sheep.  Within each category, prizes will be awarded to the Top 5 in
the Junior Division (8th grade and below) and Senior (9th grade through 12th
grade) of the current school year.  A minimum of 15 exhibitors must compete
in each age category of each specie for awards to be provided.  If the
minimum number is not met, the two age divisions for each specie will be
combined.  Showmanship points can be accumulated at any livestock show
(local, state or national) from April 1, 2016 through March 31, 2017.  The
contest will be based on the exhibitors’ highest points from eight (8)
shows.  An additional two (2) shows can be listed in case of a tie.
Exhibitors are responsible for keeping up with their own records and
submitting them on the GJLF Showmanship Point Circuit point sheet by May 1,
2017.  No point sheets will be accepted after this date.  All point sheets
must be complete, accurate and must include a signature by the applicant
and parent/guardian.  Any application that is not complete will be
disqualified.  The GJLF will maintain a list of show results on their
website at for any show results provided to
the Foundation.   Placings for all categories will be verified before
awards are presented.  Exhibitors must complete a separate point sheet for
each specie.  Awards for each specie and each age group will include 1st
Place - $250, 2nd Place - $200, 3rd Place - $150, 4th Place - $125, and 5th
Place - $100.  All participants will receive a prize from the GJLF.

All information can be found on the GJLF website.  For questions, please
email this address.  Thank you!
