NEW to 2017 ~
With the rising costs of putting on the Junior Beef Roundup, we are asking for the youth to play a larger role in helping fund the show. Additional efforts are being taken to address this challenge via avenues such as program advertisements and solicitation of new corporate sponsors. This show could not happen without the support of our industry and the many people involved. The Junior Beef Roundup Champion Program is a way to garner support of the show. While this program is completely voluntary, we do encourage our youth to step forward and work to make a difference.
The youth participating in the Junior Beef Roundup may ask friends, family, and businesses to become a “Champion” in support of the Junior Beef Roundup. Tax deductible receipts will be provided for gifts over $25
Junior Beef Roundup Champion Levels:
· $100 in cumulative donations- $25 gift certificate to the youth securing the sponsorship (gift certificate valid for show supply vendor on the fairgrounds)
· $200 in cumulative donations- $50 gift certificate to the youth securing the sponsorship (gift certificate valid for show supply vendor on the fairgrounds)
