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 www.gajrlivestockfoundation.org 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!
