Fifth Annual Southern Idaho Livestock Judging Camp July 6-8

Tuesday, April 19 2011


June 1 is the due date for registration and scholarship applications for the fifth annual Southern Idaho Livestock Judging Camp planned July 6-8 on the College of Southern Idaho campus in Twin Falls.

Judging coaches and teams from College of Southern Idaho, California State University, Chico and University of Idaho Extension will help youth build their skills presenting oral reasons skills, animal evaluation and collegiate judging.

Cost for the camp is $100 per youth participant, which includes four meals, a banquet dinner, a judging manual, notebook, contest and opportunities for college scholarships.

New this year are scholarships up to $220 for Idaho adult volunteers and 4-H professionals to attend the camp through the Idaho 4-H Advisory Committee from 4-H participation fee funds. The camp will help adults learn how to build local livestock judging programs. Scholarships will be based on bringing youth to the camp, participants' needs and how knowledge gained will be used.
